Participation very simply means taking part, but when it is referred to with regards to you as young people it quite often means:

  1. involving you in projects
  2. working with you to get your ideas and opinions
  3. encouraging you to become involved in decision-making to influence the services and activities that are provided for you

A set of National Standards have been developed in Wales for organisations that work with young people or whose work affects young people and detail how becoming involved should:

  1. be your choice
  2. provide you with clear information
  3. mean you are treated fairly, equally and with respect
  4. be meaningful for you - you should get something out of it
  5. provide you with feedback
