Children and Young People Participation
Children and young people under the age of 19 make up a quarter of the total number of people living in Barnet. That’s almost 100,000 children and young people using local services and attending our schools and colleges.
With this many children living in our borough, we want Barnet to be a family-friendly place to live and go to school.
To help us get it right, we want children, young people and families living here to tell us how well we are doing, what we need to do differently and help us make the changes they want to see.
Children, young people, and families have helped shape and co-produce many of our strategies and policies through feedback, consultation or design on various projects.
Some examples of these are:
- The Children and Young People’s Plan
- Child and Family Early Help Strategy
- Child Participation and Family Involvement Strategy
- Corporate Parenting Strategy
- Cultural Education Strategy
- Care Leavers Local Offer
- SEND and disabilities Strategy
