This National Child Protection Week we’ve talked a lot about the importance of hearing the voices of children in our communities.
A big part of this is how children are represented in the media. It’s not merely a case of using the correct words or terminology; importantly, it’s also about the way children and young people are portrayed and how we include their voices.
If you have an interest in this topic, take a look at the draft guidelines and let us know your thoughts. In particular, we’d love to include young people and media representatives in the conversation.
Together, we can create a positive framework for making sure our young people are valued and heard, and that topics relating to child abuse and neglect are treated respectfully and constructively.
