    Aims: The aim of this course is to give practitioners an awareness of how poverty impacts children and young people and explores how we listen and hear their voices. Giving children the best start in life is an aspiration of the Scottish Government “Every child deserves every chance” and Fife Council’s Children’s Services Plan stats “Fife where every child and young person matters”. Therefore, it is important the children and young people impacted by poverty are given special attention so that their needs matter, listen to and heard.
