About Hear by Right

Hear by Right is an organisational development tool that was established over 10 years ago. Built on a framework of seven standards with 20 indicators it describes best practice, supporting organisations to plan, develop and evaluate their participation practices and provision. It was created with and for young people fostering a culture of development; a continual journey for keeping young people at the heart of decision making whilst increasing their voice, influence and place within society.

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. 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.
