About Hear by Right

Hear by Right is an organisational development tool built on a framework of seven standards with 20 indicators that describe best practice, supporting organisations to plan, develop and evaluate their participation practices and provision. It fosters a culture of development; a continual journey for keeping young people at the heart of decision making. The Hear by Right framework is a free resource for self-assessment, there is also the option to go for a formal assessment process to gain a national NYA award to recognise and celebrate great practice in participation.

Hear by Right was established over 10 years ago and was created with and for young people to support organisations within the youth sector to transform more young people’s lives by developing their voice, influence and place within society. Today, young people’s voices are as important as ever with many organisations using participation, co-production and social action throughout their programmes and core work. This new and updated version of Hear by Right has been designed to be flexible across all sectors, encouraging organisations of all shapes and sizes that work with young people to join us in recognising the importance of young people’s participation throughout all of our work.
