Voice of the child
Voice of the Child Sub Group
Salford Safeguarding Children Partnership (SSCP) and the 0-25 Advisory Board supports Professor Munro's vision for child-centered, rights-based practice and greater public understanding.
'It is crucial for local areas to get feedback from children and young people and their families to inform learning and drive service improvement. It is also key to understanding the impact of the service and the difference children, young people and their families feel has been made to their lives.'
The Voice of the Child sub groupworks to ensure children and young people effectively participate in the work of SSCP, the 0-25 Advisory board and member agencies to inform learning and drive service improvement. It can and should be a central part of what we do. (United Nations Convention, Munro Review 2011, Working Together 2013, Children and Families Bill 2013).
The purpose of the voice of the child group is to ensure that young people and children have a voice and a say in services and its new developments in Salford that affect them. This communication should be 2-way and the group acts to respond when services want to consult young people, and the group members identify which young people are able to respond.
Young people are welcome to join this group and should contact email@example.com for more information.
