CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE STRATEGY
Jodie and Bernie asked the Youth Council to complete a Consultation is when members of an organisation gather information/feedback from members of the public or group on a project or scheme. More based on Oldham’s six outcomes for children and young people, which are; able to achieve aspirations and expectations, involved in meaningful, enjoyable, positive activities, able to participate in decision making processes, able to lead healthier lifestyles, safer from harm, and ready for work and lifelong learning. The Youth Council was split into groups and discussed each outcome, and how it can be measured. Then a question was asked about what has helped, through personal experience, members of the Youth Council to reach each outcome. The next question asked to the Youth Council ‘What stops children and young people from achieving each outcome?’. The last question asked was ‘If you were in charge of Children Services for Oldham, what would you do?’.
