ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis of research findings behind specific social work practices. It says that within organizations there are structural and cultural barriers to the involvement of children and young people in decision making. It recommends that there must be open discussion between managers, practitioners and children and young people in which they define participation and recognize its importance. Moreover, they should be exposed to intricacies of the decision-making processes.
