2.3 Explain the importance of active participation of Children and Young People in decisions affecting their lives:

Children and Young People are encouraged to be actively involved in their Care Placement and Action Plans, to attend and voice their opinions in their LAC reviews and any review meetings. This also allows the Children and Young People to understand that decisions made around their life are all given due consideration and that they have a voice which will be heard in the making
