Description:
Children will have a voice in matters which affect them and their views will be given due weight, in accordance with their age and maturity. This far-reaching commitment was made by the Irish Government in Goal One of the National Children's Strategy, published in November 2000. It is an important statement of intent to work lowards meeting the requirements of Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which was ratified by Ireland in 1992. Young Voices: Guidelines on How to Involve Children and Young People in Your Work has been prepared with the aim of encouraging agencies and organisations in both the statutory and nonstatutory sectors in Ireland to explore ways in which they can develop a culture of participation by children and young people. It shows how participation can become an integral part of an organisation's policy-making. planning and activities and provides practical gu idance on initiating and developing different forms of involvement. Young Voices focuses primarily on participation by children and young people over the age of twelve. However. much of the practical advice is relevant to children and young people in all age groups and several of the case studies refer to younger children. Participation by children and young people increases their sense of belonging to organisations of which they are a part and their sense of being valued and taken into consideration by organisations or agencies whose policies affect their lives. The involvement of chiLdren and young people in decision -making 'Improves the relevance and quality of policies and services, gives young people a sense of civic responsibility, makes them more interested in national and local politics and increases the likelihood that they will vote in elections'.
