The Centre for Children’s Rights at Queen’s University Belfast is seeking the views of children aged 8-17 years old about how their rights have been impacted during the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes asking about children’s right to health care, education, play, to be safe and to have their views taken seriously.
The survey was developed by the Centre for Children’s Rights in collaboration with children’s rights organisations and 270 children across the world. This survey is part of the #CovidUnder19 initiative, which will use the insights gathered from the survey to inform a report to decision-makers and governments on their response to the pandemic and how the views of children can be at the heart of their decision making.
The survey takes around 20 minutes to complete and is currently available in English but will soon be released in French, Spanish and other languages. The deadline for the survey is the 27th of June 2020.
A facilitator’s pack is available to assist adults working with or supporting children to assist children to complete this survey.
