Through the Covid-19 pandemic the one voice that matters the most has been silenced. Our children have been hit the hardest by lockdown measures and mitigations that have impacted every aspect of their lives.
What we believe
We believe children should not be treated as passive victims, but should have their views taken into account by adults who are making decisions that affect them.
Children and young people should be given the opportunity to become active partners in the process of policy making that affects their immediate lives and has an ongoing impact on their future prospects.
Call to Action
We are now calling for a public inquiry into the Welsh Government and Welsh local councils’ treatment of children’s rights during the pandemic.
The wrongs of 2020 must NEVER be inflicted on any children ever again.
Sign and share our open letter.
Together, we can make a difference
Get involved as we work together for a better future for children across Wales.
“In all actions concerning children...the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration.”
