Reflecting on the 20/21 Annual Participation Programme
Due to the impact of Covid-19, we reduced our 20/21 Annual Participation Programme to just 3 important themes. Here’s a summary of what we achieved!
Child and Human Rights
This theme allowed us to talk to our members about human rights, including their views on their knowledge of rights and how well protected their human rights are. We summarised these findings in a report called ‘Navigating the World of Rights’ and made sure that our members’ views were shared with decision makers. We’re already seeing the impact member’s views are having:
This theme allowed us to build on our early Covid-19 Impact Reports and ask members directly about how they have felt during the pandemic and if they had ideas for ‘building back better’. The findings of this theme have been released and shared with decision-makers in Scottish Government. Read the ‘Covid-19 Recovery Planning’ report here.
Realising the Promise
This theme started as soon as Scotland entered new lockdown restrictions in January 2021. We knew the impact this was having on both our members and staff and so we chose to create a simpler way of engaging. We asked members to submit questions to The Promise about the work they have planned to turn the findings of the Care Review into reality and what they would like to know. The Promise team then filmed a Q&A video, where Fiona Duncan, Chair of the Oversight Board, answered questions submitted.
With thanks to Scottish Local Authorities, funding partners and donors who make our work possible.
