|Samenvatting||Wetenschappelijke Educatieve en Sociaal-culturele Projecten (‘scientific educational and socio-cultural projects’ – WESP) is a Dutch NGO established in 1989 by Jorien Meerdink. WESP believes that services should not only respond to the needs of children, but that children themselves should participate in the decision-making process. WESP developed the ‘vraaggericht werken’ approach (which in the context of working with children loosely translates as ‘child-driven work’) in which carers are trained to work with children in ways that allow them to co-determine what services do and how they deliver. WESP provides training and support to institutions to achieve this. This article focuses on one particular school – Vragenderwijs (‘asking as you go’) – as an example.|
