Question and answer
Explain the rights that children and young people and their carers have in situations where harm or abuse is suspected or alleged
In order to be sure that children are not suffering harm of any kind you must consider the individual needs of all children involved in your organisation. Children who are different in any way may be vulnerable to abuse. [ For example, some members of your group may be children of different communities, religions or cultures, or disabled children. They should be able to engage in the activities
of your organisation knowing that particular thought will have to be given to their special needs. Under Article 12 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, children have a right to have their views heard. This is also one of the basic principles underlying the Children (NI) Order 1995. There are a number of ways in which you can help children to develop their communication skills. You should give some thought to ways in which you can ensure that children play as full a role as possible, depending on their age and understanding, in planning and decision making within your organisation such as: • a suggestion box to give everyone in the organisation an opportunity to make suggestions about how things could be improved; • a ‘consultative committee’ involving one or two of the leaders/organisers in your group meeting on a formal basis with children or young people to discuss matters affecting their joint interests, or if appropriate, include them on your management committee. ................... ]
