The Toolbox (Listen to Us)

The Listen to Us Toolbox - Ideas for involving children and young people

With Scottish Government funding,  the toolbox of ideas about involving children and young people  was developed 8 years ago in partnership with many other agencies. It included tools for including children and young people in personal planning, service self-evaluation and policy making.
