Children's participation

Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child introduced the right of children to have a say in issues affecting them. Although historic accounts demonstrate some children's willingness and ability to express an opinion pre-dating the UNCRC, a more visible emphasis on children's involvement and participation, particularly in the design and delivery of children's services, has been identified in its wake.
