Wrexham Participation Strategy 2017 – 2020
Wrexham’s Participation Team are inviting you to take part in their latest consultation- Wrexham Participation Strategy 2017 – 2020
The aim of the Consultation is to give everybody the opportunity to have your opinions and share your views on the 2017 – 2020 Participation Strategy. This consultation is open to children, young people and adults.
What is Participation?
‘Participation means it is my right to be involved in making decisions, planning and reviewing any action which might affect me’. ‘Having a Voice, Having a Choice’
Participation is a process which ensures that all young people aged 0 – 25 years are involved in the decisions that affect them, the community and society in which they live. Participation is about more than taking part. It’s about listening, sharing experiences and learning from each other.
This Participation Strategy sets out how Wrexham County Borough Council embeds its long standing commitment to participation with children and young people in decision making processes through consultation, engagement and professional observations. This strategy is fundamental to the local authority rights based approach for children and young people.
We have divided the consultation into 5 sections and would like your opinions on these :
* Section 1 – Our Vision
* Section 2 – Aims
* Section 3 – Objectives
* Section 4 – Reviewing and monitoring
* Section 5 – About You
