The Welsh Government has supported Children in Wales over three years to develop a range of new resources for care experienced children and young people across Wales, and for the professionals who support them.

As one part of the project, they have been working collaboratively with children and young people to co-produce a series of health and well-being guides, in line with the National Participation Standards. The topics relate to young people’s rights under Part 6 of the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 and the UNCRC.

Each guide is available in English and Welsh. We want more care experienced children and young people to be aware of their rights to have more voice and control in the care and assessment process and for the professionals who support them to have a range of tools to support this. The full range of guides can be accessed at www.childreninwales.org.uk/resources/looked-after-children
