Mission and Purpose
Participation Works enables organisations to effectively involve children and young people in the development, delivery and evaluation of services that affect their lives.
They are a consortium made up of the following six agencies: the British Youth Council, Children’s Rights Alliance for England, National Children’s Bureau, The National Youth Agency, National Council for Voluntary Youth Services and Save the Children - England.
Their vision is that all organisations, agencies and services that affect children and young people will have structures and systems in place to respond to their ideas and priorities, and to work with them to bring about positive change.
They offer: training and consultancy; a national network of participation workers (the Participation Works Network for England); and an online Gateway that offers a wide selection of information, the latest news and supporting resources on participation.
Participation Works is funded by The Big Lottery Fund and the Department for Children, Schools and Families.
