Children, Young People & the Future

in News

Safeguarding the future of children and young people is at the core of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation’s work and doing this together with children and young people is fundamental. 


In planning for the future, the Alannah & Madeline Foundation is seeking input from kids aged between 4 to 18 years of age to better understand their perspectives, ideas and desires. Hearing from children and young people about what their lives are like, what matters to them and what they want for their future will be instrumental to informing the development of the Foundation’s work in representing and protecting children and young people.


The first iteration of this important project focuses on reaching a large number of children and young people and learning about their lives – what they do and what it looks like – through images, words or drawings.


How can you contribute?

To support the kids in your life and allow them to have a voice, share this quick activity with them. Younger kids might require a bit of help in submitting their input, but it can be easily done with help from an adult and a few quick clicks.


Thank you for taking the time to support children and young people in having a voice.
