Guardian launches new Charter of Rights animated video

We are super excited to share with you all our new animated video, designed to promote the Charter of Rights for Children and Young People in Care!

Yesterday we officially launched the video with a morning tea attended by the children and young people who helped us to create it.

When the review of the Charter of Rights was underway in 2021, we asked children and young people how we could promote the Charter and share it to others in care. The idea of a video was really popular – and so the creation of the animated video began!

Together we worked with young people – Sarah, Gemma, Noah, Josh S, Joshua S, Josh O, Harinder, Bailey and John – alongside illustrator Madeleine Karutz, to create a video that would help others learn about the Charter and what each right means.

The young people provided advice and ideas on the video story boards, with some scenes being actual events from their lives. They also helped us out in production, recording the voiceovers for the videos.

We want to send out a huge thank you to the wonderful group of young people who shared their ideas on the characters, what each scene should be and providing their voices to help others learn about the Charter. Of course, a big thank goes to Maddie who brought the young people’s ideas to life through fun and creative stories.

We hope you enjoy watching the video as much as we had fun making it! Please share the video with the children and young people in care that you work with or care for – the Charter of Rights belongs to them.
