It consists of a series of promises to children in several different age groups: Early Years (0-5) Primary school (5-12 years) Secondary school (13-18 years)
They say: "We’ve put it together in this style so that it tells you what we promise to do to help you grow up."Growing up is seen by these collaborators as so precarious that children need help and they`re the ones with the know how or the means of getting that. Forget your parents.
Here is one example: "We promise to talk to you and your family about your needs and the services we have to support those needs."
"We promise to work with you and your family to encourage and support positive family relationships."
In Getting it Right for You, the young person is represented as `Number 1 priority` wearing a yellow star. I don`t think much of the symbolism although at a deeper level I do find it uncannily accurate.
It is hard enough sometimes to separate from your own parents. Imagine what it would be like as a young person trying to get out of the grip of this lot.
