Children’s Voice Questionnaire

Capturing children’s voice is an important part of measuring the outcome of the Hamish & Milo wellbeing intervention.

Having their voice listened to enables the development of trust in feeling valued and heard and that they have something of value to contribute. It promotes inclusivity and recognition of the importance of different viewpoints, empathy for other’s beliefs and opinions and supports the fundamental right to have their thoughts, ideas and experiences taken seriously.

As an important part of measuring the outcome of the Hamish & Milo wellbeing intervention, the ‘child voice questionnaire’ shows the experience from the child’s perspective. Much of this is listened to throughout the group experience but the new questionnaire is a resource to support in highlighting children’s experience.

“Children need to know that it is safe and that it is important for them to express their view… They need to know that what they say is valued and will be listened to and considered.”

Anna Freud
