Although there is a growing knowledge base on children and young people’s (CYP) participation in child welfare and social work, it is necessary to systematically describe and summarise the knowledge from their subjective perspectives. This study has conducted a meta-analysis of qualitative research on CYP’s experiences of individual participation in social services for children and young people. We specifically focus on what the research literature can tell us about how they understand the concept of individual participation and which professional practices they find essential for their participation in the services. The aim is to present knowledge about individual participation in social services seen from the CYP perspective.
