Participation and Engagement

CYCJ advocates for greater levels of participation in all aspects of decision making. However, we have yet to systematically include the voice of those with recent lived experience.

We have primarily focussed on support to practitioners and policy makers. Yet becoming the Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice in August 2020 required a strategic shift in how we seek out, listen to, and act on the views of those with lived experience of the justice systems.

In 2021 we published our first Participation and Engagement Strategy, co-produced with the young people of Youth Justice Voices and STARR, Scotland’s only curated space for secure care experienced children, young people and adults.
