Listen Up

Listen Up is a 3-hour training program which aims to help you empower children and young people to speak up about what makes them feel safe or unsafe in an organisation. This training aims to unpack Standard 2: Children’s participation and empowerment of the 10 Child Safe Standards recommended by the Royal Commission, and help you implement it in your organisation. Children that are more assertive and vocal in expressing their opinions are less vulnerable to abuse. The training will also work through how to respond to disclosures of abuse from children or young people who may be experiencing harm.

  • Unpacking Standard 2: Children’s participation and empowerment
