Child Friendly Project Officer
I am delighted Southampton are working with UNICEF UK on the Child Friendly Cities Initiative. I feel extremely privileged to be part of the council’s coordinating team being able to drive our goals and passion to become a Child Friendly Southampton.
For the past 8 years I have worked directly with children and young people advocating for their views and ensuring they have access to meaningful participation. Southampton City Council's ambition to become a Child Friendly City aligns with my passion to involve children and young people in the important work we do, whilst ensuring they are aware of and have access to their rights, allowing them to speak-up when they feel this isn’t happening.
