The text promotes the nature of participative working with children and young people. The nature of understanding cooperation and reducing limitations in terms of access is a valuable pre-requisite in professional practice with children and young people across the professions.
The potential impact of social justice and social change from children and young people themselves is an exciting prospect and the text explores the ethics, value and sustainability of effective future work with children and young people.
