Written by Council for Disabled ChildrenDate 10 Jun 2014

This briefing forms part of the Making it Happen resources and looks at the duties set out in the Children and Families Act to engage children, young people and parent carers.

The voice of children, young people and their parents are at the centre of Children and Families Act, clearly set out in the principles in Section 19. This means that children, young people and their families should be involved in decision making at every level of the system. This briefing looks at participation in joint commissioning decisions, the local offer and Education Health and Care plans.
