Consultation/learning cycle

Decisions makers can e-mail feedback/photos/video that can be uploaded to group area – monitored by administer proper to upload (check the format and language is appropriate i.e. not too formal)

Young people can then review how their information has been used and what change has taken place due to their involvement.

 

Young people can review and feedback to information provide by decision maker which in turn can be forward (with young person/groups permission) to continue the consultation/learning cycle.

 

The benefit of SNS consultation is that young people can feedback their views in a manner that is accessible to them (written, visual or audio) without it being filtered, moderated or mis-represented by adults.

 

Considerations:

Monitoring what dialogue is taking place between practitioner and young person

Evidence practice?

Confidentially?

Informed consent with young person to evidence correspondence with manager – contacted and permission provided by young person prior to e-mail dialogue.
