What we do

The Forum concentrates its activities on developing ways to hear the voice of children in need and to relay this to central policy authorities. It seeks to influence changes in policy so that the investments create services that better meet the needs and aspirations of young people. The Forum now acts as the consultee on a number of local authority and statutory bodies providing services to special needs children in Highland.

The Forum seeks to promote and enhance the participation of children and young people, including those who may be harder to involve, in planning, decision making and service self-evaluation. 

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.
