This report, Life as a Child and Young Person in Ireland: Report of a National Consultation, documents the views of 66,705 children and young people. This national consultation was conducted to inform development of the Children and Young People’s Policy Framework by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs, which will set out the key policy objectives for the next five years.
During 2010, the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA) (formerly the Office of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, OMCYA) developed the concept and methodology for a children and young people’s consultation. It was agreed that children and young people in every school and Youthreach centre in the country would be invited to complete short questionnaires containing three open questions.
