A global conference on children and young people’s participation in safeguarding

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) not only includes the right for children to be protected from violence, it means that children have the right to have their opinions taken into account in matters that affect them, including on the development of child safeguarding measures.

Organisations that do not consult with children to identify child abuse risks or when they are developing or evaluating safeguarding measures are not only failing as duty-bearers, they will inevitably have a less robust child safeguarding framework in place.
