Young people wanted to re-design the welfare state

Children England is looking for young people aged 13-21 to lead the next phase of the ChildFair State Inquiry: research and development of a new vision for the welfare state. The project will deal with questions such as: how schools, housing and health can become child- and young people-centred, and how neighbourhoods can help young people thrive.
