The National Independent Advocacy Board, an e-group and Children and Young People's Partnerships will all help involve young people in the development of advocacy.

How we will achieve this

Including children and young people as full members of the National Independent Advocacy Board that will advise the National Assembly of Wales and the Welsh Assembly Government and influence the further development of advocacy in Wales

E-group

Having a further e-group of children and young people who will inform and provide opinions to take to the National Independent Advocacy Board.  

Children and Young People’s Partnerships

The general responsibilities of Children and Young People’s Partnerships to enable children and young people to participate in planning and review processes, which must include involvement in the commissioning of advocacy services.
