Young people involved in Local Authority's important pledge to others
A group of eight young people from Gateshead’s One Voice Network created the DVD to inform all looked after children in the borough of their rights.
Gateshead Council’s Pledge to them on how they can expect to be treated was written in consultation with this group of young people.
Digital Voice worked with them to animate every promise that has been made to them, as an enjoyable way to ensure children of any age understand what their rights are.
The DVD and colouring book based on the animated characters will be shared with all looked after children in the borough.
The project was supported by the Children’s Rights Officer and the Looked After Children’s Virtual Head Teacher.
