Child Poverty Workshop
Ten young NCB NI members met on the 26th October 2010
to discuss their ideas for the Government’s (OFMDFM) Child
The workshop was a chance for young people to
have a say about what they think this strategy should look like
(from a young person’s point of view).
They met with Government representative
Michael Woods who was particularly impressed with what they had to
say: “It is refreshing to hear the children's views they are more
informed and more realistic if you like than many adults working in
this area”. He went on to say “it was one of the most informative
days I have had in 15 odd years working in social research!”
The young people’s views and ideas were
recorded and will feed into the new Child Poverty strategy.
