Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children
There are many benefits to your organisation in enabling children and young people to participate and be empowered. They are more likely to speak up if they feel valued and respected. Often they don’t know what to do if they feel unsafe. Knowing that your organisation is a safe place for them will increase their self-esteem and confidence. This will help children to feel safe and be strong enough to speak up when they don’t feel safe.
