What Matters to Children & Young People Conversations?Organised by: Children in Wales
08 March 2017, Llandudno – Book Online
One day course
Conversations with Children & Young People under the Social Services and Well-being Act 2014 and other arenas for assessing Children’s & Young People’s Well-being Outcomes.
Under the Social Services and Well-being Act 2014, children & young people who are eligible for Care and Support Services will need to be involved in What Matters Conversations and the Co-production of their Well-being Goals. There has been a culture change in the way we work with people of all ages in Wales, including children & young people, a move from doing to, to doing with children & young people.
The course will look at the legislative framework in Wales, the context for What Matters Conversations, and how to conduct assessments with children & young people. The training will give participants the knowledge and practical skills in conducting assessments, using play and creative techniques and activities from preparation, to conducting assessments through to what happens after. The course will use a child rights based approach, which is an overarching duty within the Act.

- An overview of the Social Services and Well-being Act 2014
