Youth voice - share your good practice


The Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY) and Hub na nÓg invite arts organisations to share your good practice examples of involving young people in decision making, by participating in a survey.


Since the publication of the National Strategy on Children and Young People’s Participation in Decision Making (2015-2020), there has been a growing demand for examples of good practice in giving children and young people a meaningful voice in decision-making. The Department of  Children, Equality, Disability,  Integration and  Youth (DCEDIY) and Hub na nÓg has commissioned a study to bring together the national and international evidence on ways of effectively involving children and young people in decision-making.

A survey has been developed that aims to identify initiatives/practice that have resulted in meaningful involvement of children and young people in policy, practice and services. A selection of initiatives/practice will be developed into mini case studies to be showcased on the Hub na nÓg website. 


We encourage arts organisations that have developed meaningful ways to involve children and young people in decision making to share their stories through the survey.


The survey and further background information is available here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/HNNSURVEY

Responses are being sought by Friday, December 18th.
