Liverpool is on a journey to become a Child Friendly City, with the help of UNICEF UK.
Liverpool City Council wants to hear the views and ideas of Liverpool’s children and young people, which will help the city become a more child-friendly place to grow up.
It’s an exciting time for children and young people in Liverpool, as the city council starts the journey towards becoming a UNICEF UK Child Friendly City, along with its partners.
The aim is to enable children and young people in Liverpool to enjoy the best quality of life and be able to reach their full potential.
In a Child Friendly City, children and young people:
- Have a say about decisions that affect them
- Can express their views freely and are encouraged and supported to do that
- Can access good health, education, transport and other services
- Feel safe, prioritised and protected from discrimination and harm
- Can enjoy public spaces and meet other children and young people freely
Gordon Johnson, Designated Safeguarding Officer at Liverpool County FA, said: “Liverpool County Football Association are pleased to be able to link in with our city council and canvas the voice and opinions of the youth in our city in the hope of confirming Liverpool as a Child Friendly City.
“I would encourage all players and participants of our clubs to engage in this fantastic initiative and help by taking a few minutes to complete the attached survey.”
