The PWNW (Participation Workers' Network for Wales) is a free service for supporting practitioners and organisations to promote participation through their work with children and young people.
The Network has the following core services:
• A public information area which includes essential information on participation and its development in Wales. The area is also updated with policy news and updates from strategic bodies in Wales.
• A private members’ area. The member’s area is free to join and holds contact details for all PWNW members. By joining members can share and search for examples of good practice from other members. Find out more in the PWNW area.
The Network has recently been redesigned and redeveloped to be easier to search and easier for members to add good practice. Find out more about the changes here.
The Children and Young People's Participation Consortium for Wales, the Participation Unit and the Welsh Assembly Government's Participation Project are working together to promote the participation of children and young people (0-25) in decision-making in Wales. We have developed a set of National Standards for participation that are relevant for all organisations who work with or have an impact on children and young people. Together we can ensure that all children and young people have a positive and meaningful experience of participation across Wales.
Children in Wales is a joint sponsor in the Reach the Heights project, supporting young people to gain skills for learning and employment through work experience and community based opportunities.
