Our final In My Own words of the year sees young people who were involved in Making Space 2016, an international design award and two-day conference, tell us about their involvement and experience of being part of a young people’s judging panel. (In My Own Words – page 31-32)
Finally, November saw the delivery of the Children in Scotland annual conference 2016, Welbeing and the world of the child. Across the two days delegates heard from plenary speakers, attended workshops and saw first hand examples of
programmes working to positively influence children, young people and their families. We also heard some very powerful and moving accounts of experiencing hardship and adversity, encouraging us all to do our bit to make Scotland a place of opportunity, equality and inclusion. Read our review of the event (Special feature - pages 23-28) to refresh your memory - or find out what you missed!
