Event report: Children's Voices at Heart in London
Keen to make sure children have their say in London? If you couldn't make it to our February event looking at how we can amplify children's voices in London decision-making, you can still read the write-up and see what ideas came out of it. There was a great buzz of positivity, collaboration and ideas for action in the room and all participants, younger and older, are happy for their suggestions to be taken up by others working in London. So have a read!
Helping the Mayor put Children at Heart in London Children England and partners at the 4in10 child poverty network helped children and young people in London contribute to the Mayor’s consultation on his Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, running sessions to gather younger London residents’ comments on the Mayor’s proposed plans and explore their own ideas for improving their experience growing up in the capital. The resulting submission to the Mayor's consultation is below.
