Breakout Session 3: Engaging with Communities & Stakeholders

The workshop focused on examples of good practice in implementing the duties through effectively involving children and young people but also their families and the local communities. Presenters shared examples of engagement in-terms of needs assessment but also evaluating impact and shaping services.
