Young people encouraged to have a say about safety

Children and young people aged from 10 to 18 years are encouraged to have their say in an online survey about their views on safety in organisations and institutions. 

The survey aims to better understand what young people need when they feel unsafe, how they think adults and institutions respond and what barriers exist in asking for and receiving support.

This online survey is part of a larger research project commissioned by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which is exploring children and young people’s perceptions of safety in institutional contexts.

Children and young people can contribute their views from 3 August until 30 September 2015 via Learning Science Institute Australia’s website

The survey is coordinated by the Institute of Child Protection Studies at the Australian Catholic University, Griffith University and the Queensland University of Technology.
