Working with Children & Young People

This HSE is committed to ensuring that children and young people participate in the planning, design, development, delivery and evaluation of services.

"Working with Children and Young People: A quick guide for Frontline Staff" aims to support all frontline staff in delivering on this commitment. The guide was developed in consultation with staff, organisations representing young people and of course children and young people themselves. This guide is designed to assist HSE staff, many of whom already work in a participatory way with children and young people. This guide will be used in conjunction with available resources materials and training to ensure all staff are supported to achieve its goals.

Children and young people want and are entitled to a health service that they can trust and rely on to meet their needs.
