"Child-centred thinking" is a hot topic in the public sector, as agencies prepare to work together in the new child-centred operating model that will replace CYF and reform the care and protection and youth justice systems. But what exactly does "child-centred" mean, and how does it apply to the wider policy process?This talk will provide a taster in child-centred thinking and practical tools for considering children in policy, both when children are the target, and when they could be impacted by policies targeted at others. We will cover what it means to be child-centred, questions to ask in the policy process, when and how to engage directly with children, examples of successful impact assessments and consultations, and children’s rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
