Sunday September 13, 2020 is set aside

This "Empowering Children and Young People" e-learning video explores the important role that children’s empowerment can play as a protective factor within organisational contexts. This is an important element of the Safeguarding Framework as identified by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and is often an area that many individuals and organisations struggle to comprehend and implement.


In this video, we explore children’s rights and responsibilities as well as the legislative requirements in relation to children’s participation in organisations. Throughout the video, we demonstrate what child participation and engagement looks like in a parish context by using practical examples, hearing from children themselves, highlighting parish case studies, conducting a gap analysis of a parish group working directly with children as well as exploring the parish self-assessment tool
