This innovative resource is a practical guide that affirms the importance of including the voice of children in the planning, designing and evaluating of strategies, environments and programs. 

The Guide has combined essential information in an easy to use format which is well referenced. It has been produced to be transferable and sustainable to other communities and organisations. Relevant strategies can be developed by organisations to meet their own community’s requirements.
