·         Ensuring the voice of the child is central, similarly to multi-agency cases;

·         How transition is always an issue for young people;

·         Support of multi-agency partners, agreeing the preferred methods of consultation ;

·         Ensuring that the voices of the people that use services (i.e. parents and children) are heard;

·         Effectively communicating with the children who use services;
