Supporting Families by Promoting Children’s Rights
Child Rights in the Community Context is for anyone who works with children and families.

The Child Rights in the Community Context newsletter is for anyone who works with children and families. This quick-read newsletter pulls material from the Canadian Journal of Children’s Rights of interest to family support practitioners and the organizations for which they work. Find tips, suggestions and evidence-based practices that will encourage shared accountability for children’s well-being and increase the visibility of children as individuals in your community.

This newsletter is created in partnership with the
Landon Pearson Resource Centre for the Study of Childhood and Children’s Rights at Carleton University. Please visit their page for more information on children’s rights.
