Involving children and young people in policies, documents and changes that affect them, as you've propbably worked out already, is central to our purpose at Youth Friendly. For us, it's essential that we commit the same amount of attention, creativity and communication style to consulting as we do to everything else.
This is a quick review of a recent consultation we did around the new Youth Work Strategy for Wales. We really enjoyed engaging in the challenge of communicating a high-level national strategy in a way that young people would comprehend and respond to with valid suggestions, comments and ideas.
The innovative approaches utilised by Youth Friendly enabled a wide range of young people to engage, have their voice heard and gave young people an opportunity to shape a future key Welsh Government strategy. Youth friendly delivered the project on time and within budget.

We've also just done consultations with home education families from across the country around possible changes to legislation, as-well-as consultations on various documents that we've developed the youth friendly summary of.
We can do consultations on various levels and enjoy being involved in the development of the project from early stages.
