Analysis of Public Consultation responses

The Children and Young People’s Strategy Team (CYPST) has completed its analysis of responses to the public consultation on the draft Children and Young People’s Strategy.  The draft Strategy was launched for public consultation in December 2016 and concluded on 31 March 2017. Over 500 stakeholders, including parents / guardians and children and young people participated in the various events held by DE, Parenting NI and the Participation Network.

The Project Team, with analytical support provided by NISRA colleagues and the Centre Effective Services (CES) and supported by the Assembly Research and Information Service (RaISe), have now completed the analysis of all responses to the consultation exercise.

As with the co-design process, there was positive engagement in the consultation process from every sector with responses demonstrating broad levels of support for the outcomes based approach and the focus on societal outcomes and conditions of well-being.

The report aims to provide a factual overview of responses received to each question posed during the consultation; an overview of the additional comments raised; and a summary of the key recurring themes that need to be addressed. 

Following on from the consultation exercise, work is underway to prepare the final Strategy document.
