The Lundy model of participation is increasingly being adopted throughout Surrey, having already been used extensively nationally and internationally. Based on four key concepts – Space, Voice, Audience and Influence – it helps those working with children and young people to ensure ‘the right to express views’ and ‘the right to have views given due weight’ are at the heart of what we do.
The model was developed by academic Laura Lundy, Professor of International Children’s Rights at the School of Education at the Queen’s University of Belfast. A good starting point to learning more can be found here.
