Advocacy groups, associations, NGOs, civil society and major international organisations are important actors in raising awareness of the rights and needs of some overlooked groups of children, young people and adults. Several of these organisations have funded or undertaken substantial research on these issues and have produced a wide range of accessible and practical resources in relation to voices and participation. Some of these may be adapted for use in the context of inclusive education policy-making. The possible benefits of developing synergies and ways of working with these sectors is an important further consideration for policy-makers.
Voices into Action explores ways to develop a more participatory approach to educational decision-making, with learners and families at the centre.
