Children and young people are being given the opportunity to develop and shape the future delivery of emotional and mental health services through broad roots engagement that captures the well being of all children and not just those who use Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). This includes working closely with Children in Wales, the Children’s Commissioner’s office, Time to Change Wales and the third sector ‘High Needs Collaborative’.
Proposals emerging from the Programme will be continually tested as they are developed through the Commissioner’s network of children and young people and the Children in Wales, Young Wales’ Forum. The latter provides an opportunity for children and young people to directly engage on issues that are important to them.
T4CYP Newsletters are regularly produced and circulated to a wide range of stakeholders. This ensures that both children and young people and partner organisations involved in the delivery of services are kept up to date with current thinking and are able to influence developing proposals.
You Said We Did
The Programme recognises the importance of providing feedback to those children and young people who contribute their views. In order to provide assurance that their views and opinions are leading to tangible action and service improvements we have developed a report that highlights the action being taken to respond to issues raised.
