What we do
The Forum promotes the active participation of children and young people with additional support needs in the development of policy and the evaluation of service provision.
The Forum supports Inspire Highland. These inspiring young people identify their priorities in terms of areas of policy and practice they want to influence. Inspire Highland members are then supported to develop their campaigns.
Follow Inspire Highland on Facebook Highland Children's Forum.
The Forum seeks to stay at the front of policy development and service evaluation to ensure that the voice of children and young people is influential in bringing about better outcomes for them and their families. The Policy Lead continues to seek to hold services and policy makers to account regarding listening to children and young people's view and taking their views into consideration in decision making in support of their rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Children and young people are involved in contributing those views directly wherever possible.
The Forum is currently working on some exciting projects with children and young people: Healthy Minds Seminar and the Digital Project.
