Involved by Right

Involved by Right is an EU Daphne programme grant-funded project which seeks to improve participation and advocacy in child protection to achieve better outcomes for children at risk. The project is unique in that it will ensure the active participation of children with experience of the child protection system and those in public care. The project started in March 2011 and will end in February 2013. A strong partnership of five organisations has been brought together to bring expertise of children’s rights to front line practitioners: Barnardo’s and National Children’s Bureau (NCB) which are two UK non-government organisations, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (UK) Helsingborg local authority (Sweden) and the local Social Health Unit in Bassano del Grappa (Italy). The project has been designed to deliver a specific Daphne programme priority: “Field work at grass-roots level with involvement of children and young people to empower them to protect themselves and their peers against violence.” Find out more:
