The KSCB Children’s Engagement Group, supported by the board, have considered how we can deliver a consistent message that clearly articulates the meaning of the ‘voice of the child’ that is understood by practitioners. We have developed, through consultation, a set of standards and values that will be adopted and will ensure that the ‘voice’ is heard and influences our activity. the following acronym and resources have been developed:

Value the views and opinions of children in Knowsley by listening to them

Open, friendly and non-judgemental in our engagement, developing trusting relationships

Involve children in the planning, design and delivery of services

Communicate through a wide range of methods in a manner that is understood

Ensure that views are captured through different mediums to shape future services
