Across the region, members of the Community of Practice have allocated Participation Leads, who are committed to finding ways to listen to the messages from young people and parents/carers, and act upon them.

We have created a range of resources to support services with their participatory practice. These are aimed at helping you with establishing a new participation group in your service, developing your current practice, guidance to support applications for further funding, and ideas to help you measure the difference you are making. Explore the range of resources by clicking on the sections below.

You can also explore resources made by young people and parent/carers here.
