Do you know anyone aged 10-18 in Australia?

Published: Thursday 27th August 2015

Researchers from the ACU Institute of Child Protection Studies are inviting young people aged 10-18 to participate in an online survey about their views on children and young people’s safety in institutions. 

The survey is part of a larger study exploring children and young people’s perceptions and understanding of safety in institutional contexts, which has been commissioned by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. It focuses on what makes children feel safe in institutions.

The survey is voluntary, anonymous and there are prizes to be won.

We would appreciate your help to promote this survey: by letting your family and friends know about it, by sharing the survey link on your Facebook page, or by talking about it over the dinner table!

The report from the first part of the study was also recently released. It reports on the findings of focus groups with 121 children and young people aged 4-18 across Australia, on their views and perceptions of safety. The report, Taking us Seriously: Children and young people talk about safety and institutional responses to their safety concerns, is available here
