The Scottish government has published the report, A model of engagement with children, young people and planners in the development of children’s services plans, on a pilot project which sought to engage children and young people as partners in service development as a model of good practice in community planning. The report tables the evidence, and outlines the principles and processes underpinning the pilot and its rights-based approach to policymaking. To facilitate the underlying principles, the pilot included activities utilising creative, small groups, hands-on approaches that appealed to children to encourage conversations and elicit engaged, meaningful feedback. Key directions for action were identified in relation to topics including mental health support, family life, school and education, bullying and violence, and poverty. The pilot included an evaluation component that included reflecting on how participants viewed the process.
