Highland wants to be the best place for children to grow up.

To make that happen what needs to change? Chat4Change is an opportunity for children and young people across Highland to have a voice in the development of policy and practice in Highland. 

Please encourage children and young people to take part. 

They can say as much or as little as they want, about as few or as many issues as they like. 

They can draw, do a video, write a story, make a comment or otherwise express a view

We want to hear from young children too. Young children might not be able to comment on the priorities for improving Highland as a place to grow up, but they can tell us what they think about where they live, what their favourite things are to do and what their imagination would love to see in their neighbourhood. 

Parents, when you are out for a walk with your child, ask them about what they like about living in their neighbourhood. You can take photos of places your child is interested in and send by WhatsApp with your child's comments to 07789680812. We will not post or use photos without consent but the picture may help us understand what your child feels about that place or just send the comment. 

Or use any of the prompts below as a way to find out what your child likes best about living where they are, and what their imagination would like in their neighbourhood.
