What children and young people in out-of-home-care are saying

In 2016 the Commissioner asked 96 children and young people in out-of-home-care about what helps them to speak up and ask for help when they are worried or concerned.

The said having people they trust who listen and respond was very important. They also said they want a variety of ways to ask for help.

You can see more about what they said in the report below, Speaking Up in Care. A copy of this booklet was given to the 96 children and young people who were interviewed for the project. 

A second report was also written for government and the community, Speaking Out About Raising Concerns in Care



The Commissioner worked with these organisations on this project
