About this Event

Engaging 0-5s in Children’s Services Planning: A Children’s Rights Based Approach

The National Third Sector GIRFEC project works to support all children, young people and their families to be at the centre of planning our services. But…how do you engage a baby in service design and delivery? What kind of feedback can you expect from a toddler who can’t fill out an evaluation form?

This one day practical and interactive training will be facilitated by ‘Starcatchers’, Scotland’s National arts and early years organisation, specialising in creating performances and exploring creative activity for babies, toddlers and young children aged 0-5 and the adults who care for them. We will explore how to engage babies and young children in meaningful ways and use their voices to shape local Children’s Services Planning.

The training will cover:

how under 5s experience their rights through the UNCRC

the importance of relationships when it comes to engaging babies and young children

practical ideas on how to help babies and young children develop a sense of agency

using a variety of visual arts approaches to give young children a voice

Outcomes:

Increased understanding around the current policy landscape of UNCRC and Children’s Services Planning

Greater awareness of strategies for engaging with the views of under 5s

Confidence in using the views of under 5s to shape and plan our services

Who is it aimed at?

The training will be useful for strategic managers as well as practitioners working directly with under 5s. We also welcome those who want to know more about how to engage in under 5s in planning services.
