CPSL publishes 'how-to' guide for engaging children & young people in conversations about safeguarding
Tuesday, 20 August 2019
A child safe institution seeks the views of children. It provides children with formal and informal opportunities to share their views. The resource, " 'A how-to' guide for engaging children & young people in conversations about safeguarding" has been designed to support organisations to meet this critical component of being a child safe institution.
This guide has been developed in collaboration with the Australian Catholic University's Institute of Child Protection Studies, to support Church entities to engage with children and young people about keeping organisations safe. During the development of the materials CPSL consulted children, who told us the most important part of the process is making sure adults have these conversations with children.
