Have your say on My Say Matters, Barnet’s Child Participation and Family Involvement Strategy!
Family Services are currently consulting on a new Child Participation and Family Involvement Strategy. We recognise the value of involving children, young people and their families in the way we shape and develop our services, and we believe that by working together we can learn from each other.
my say matters
Our strategy sets out how we plan to involve children, young people and families in giving us feedback; helping us think about problems and new opportunities; and taking an active part in changing how we do things at every level in our service. We plan to do this in three ways:
Listening: We will listen to the voices of children and young people and centre their views, wishes and experience in what we do'.
Working with: We will find ways to engage the voices of children and young people at an individual and/or group level to help us to hear their views.
Acting upon: We will make sure that what children, young people and their families tell us result in changing the way we do things and the decisions we make.
HAVE YOUR SAY
We want to involve as many parents, carers, children and young people as possible, so if you have have a child aged 14+ living in Barnet, please get them to read our draft strategy, complete our online questionnaire and/or join one of our virtual focus groups in December.

Consultation closing date is 20 December 2021.
