Participation and co-production best practice

The importance of participation

At Norfolk County Council, we are committed to inclusive participation. It informs the way that we work and make decisions and is a key part of everything we do.

Without participation, it can be easy to make assumptions about what children, young people (CYP) and families think and feel.

It is important that we work with our partners and listen and understand CYP and parents'/carers' views and experiences.

With everyone working together to understand all views and experiences, we can:

  • Develop and improve services
  • Achieve the best possible outcomes for children and young people, so they flourish
