  • Informing children and young people, parents and carers of their rights and responsibilities, where to access advice and support and what they should expect from health service providers -  empowering them to participate in decisions about the treatment and care of their child
  • Raising awareness and representing children and young people’s needs and concerns within government, healthcare committees and other non governmental  organisations
