Welcoming the announcement, Minister O’Gorman said

 

I am delighted to launch the “What WE Think” suite of reports. The input of Children and Young People is critical to Ireland’s input to UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention of the Rights of People with Disabilities and the Universal Periodic Review.  The results of the consultation process will also help inform my Department’s future policy development.

The views of Children and Young People are vital to the development of child-centred policies and protections which reflects a core value in a society where children can flourish and see a brighter future. This suite of reports will assist the work to ensure this future and empower children to voice what kind of future they want.
