Listening to young people to improve services and outcomes....

Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child gives all children and young people the right to have their opinion listened to, and their views taken into account on decisions that affect their lives.  At PDC we believe this means all services for children and young people need systems in place for listening to the children and young people they work with. But more importantly services also to act on what they say. This means changing and improving the way your services are delivered, based on young peoples' voices.

This form of youth participation is powerful tool which greatly empowers the young people who take part in it. However, even more significantly, it improves the services that take part. At PDC when we talk about improving the services, we mean improving the outcomes for and impact for the children, young people and communities those services are for.  

We call this the "Dialogue and Change Process". Our work is based on supporting services for young people to put this process in place.
