Korero Mai Whakarongo Mai: Children and Young People, Seen and Heard

We will hear the voices of children and young people on social services, in this ground-breaking conference session on Monday afternoon. This will be the impetus for learning forums on why and how to include these voices in service design and ongoing evaluation.

Participants will gain practical tools to take back to their organisation, along with ideas for an action plan.

This session consists of plenary session, group work and self assessment. It has been developed with the assistance of VOYCE, the Office of the Children’s Commissioner, and Unicef. The session will be facilitated by Anya Satyanand of Ara Taiohi.
