Our work is grounded in international human rights and children’s rights standards, including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Children's Rights

As a rights-based organisation, children's rights are an integral part of Include Youth.

Young people involved with our services have participated in 'Rights' workshops exploring what rights they have, where to access help if their rights are not being upheld and how to have the skills and confidence to advocate for themselves to ensure that they are listened to and taken seriously.

Staff are also trained in children's rights to help support, enable and encourage all young people to actively participate in society and influence the issues and decisions that affect their and other young people's lives.
