Involving children and young people in safeguarding

We are committed to involving children and young people in shaping the future of services in Trafford to ensure they are protected and feel safe.

The ambition is to engage with children and young people who experience services, and then our agencies and organisations will make sure that the information, help, protection and services are available at the right time and in the right place for them.

Voice, engagement activity and co-design with children and young people is an area of development for us, and we will work with established groups and forums where children and young people can have their say, share their views and experiences, challenge and support local decision makers and shape and influence planning, commissioning and service provision at an individual and strategic level.

These groups include:

  • Children in Care Council
  • Youth Cabinet
  • Junior Children in Care Council
  • After Care Forum
