Our policy consultation responses
We give girls a platform to tell decision makers about the issues that matter to them
Our recent responses to consultations
To make sure girls' voices are heard, we regularly respond to government and decision makers' calls for evidence on key issues. We use testimonies and evidence from our research reports, including our annual Girls' Attitudes Survey, and feedback from our Advocates and British Youth Council members in our responses.
Here you can see a selection of our recent responses. To see the full list visit the archive page.
