Conference on children’s participation in safeguarding
From 6 to 8 September 2022, Keeping Children Safe is hosting the first global online conference on Child Participation in Safeguarding. This is a unique platform for practitioners, children and youth to share best practices, resources, challenges and successful experiences on how children and young people can participate in developing child safeguarding measures.
Why this summit?
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 the development of child safeguarding measures.
All organisations have the responsibility to protect children and while the majority do everything they can to keep them safe, too many still have critical gaps in child safeguarding – putting children at risk of harm. From design to implementation and accountability of safeguarding measures, consulting with children is crucial to ensure robust child safeguarding frameworks are in place. For example, to identify risks, develop safeguarding policies and monitor their implementation.
