Eurochild’s Scottish member, Children’s Parliament, consults 96 children to produce report

Child participation used to produce a report which will be taken forward by Scottish Government

Children are experts in their own lives and as such Children’s Parliament is interested in learning about the experiences that shape children’s lives at home, at school and in the community. As part of the wider consultation and engagement work around the development of the Child Poverty Bill and Delivery Plan, Scottish Government commissioned Children’s Parliament to facilitate this consultation with children to explore their experiences and views of how poverty affects their lives. In this consultation, Children’s Parliament worked with 96 children between 8 and 13 years old from six schools across Scotland.

The report will help to ensure that the experiences and views of children are reflected in the strategic and legislative developments which will be taken forward by Scottish Government and aim to address child poverty.
