New Charter resources now available

We are super excited to launch our new resources for the Charter of Rights for Children and Young People in Care!

With the help of children and young people and the amazing illustrator, Madeleine Karutz, we now have posters and booklets available to share with children and young people to help them learn about their rights.

Both the posters and booklets are available in picture only or text formats. Check out some samples below!

“The new resources are a real credit to Madeleine and my team in listening to the voices of the children and young people,” Guardian Penny Wright said.

“The young people should feel really proud of their role in this project, knowing that they helped shape the booklets that will be used, and enjoyed, for years to come.”

“This has been such a fun project to work on and getting feedback from young people has really made it special.” Madeleine said.

“The feedback from them has been so constructive and thoughtful, the work is so much better because of their input. Also, so happy to hear from people that love cartoons and colourful things as much as me!”

We would like to thank all the children and young people who helped us with this project. We are really proud of these new designs, and hope they are too.

And a big thanks to Madeleine, Aboriginal artist David Booth (who worked on the Connecting to Culture pages), CREATE Foundation, and all the carers and adults who helped to support children and young people to have their say on these new resources.

We are now working on animated videos to promote the Charter – as suggested by young people – so keep your eyes peeled!
