In St Helens we are striving to do things differently than we have done before. Rather than consulting with children and young people, we are enabling them to lead the way. This will take time, but we hope that what we achieve together will be so much better. We have a project underway where children are talking about the people who help them and what helps them to have a say. This will lead to the children sharing with everyone their ideas on what helps them to be involved and to have a say. At the moment they are planning to take their ideas to the Children's Improvement Board, with the help of our Young Advisors. We can't wait to show you their final work, but here is what we have heard children and young people with SEND say so far.
We also have pulled together what is important to people about what we call 'Voice of the child'. We think it is important to build relationships and trust in order to help children to have a say.
We have worked with with children, parents, carers and professionals throughout the creation of the NEW Local Offer and have tried to build as many of their comments into the development of the site as possible. Work continues with the Listen4Change group and as such we are looking to create a new and improved offering that will meet everyone's requirements.
