Resources for Children & Young People

Welcome to our page.

At QUB Centre for Children's Rights we believe that children and young people should be able to access important information in a child-friendly and engaging way. 

 Here you will find lots of interesting and useful information from the projects we have completed. 

 All the resources on this page have been co-produced with children and young people for children and young people with our help. 

Please scroll down this page to find more information about each project and the child friendly resources produced.
