Working closely with our Participation team, we support health leaders to listen to and involve the children whom they serve.
We recognise that young people are experts on their health.
We know that it is important, and can support health systems, to amplify children and young people's voices and views that are already shared in your community.
We also work on embedding children and young people's voice system-wide in co-producing service improvement.
For example, the Council for Disabled Children has been approached by a number of local areas requesting support to strengthen and monitor the local Neuro-Development/ Autism Pathway.
Through supporting these areas, CDC has developed a widely applicable step-by-step process for thinking about pathway redesign and evaluation, which places the voices of children, young people and parent carers at the heart of decision-making.
