With the help of some amazing young people at CREATE Foundation, the OPG has a new brochure for children and young people. The brochure folds out to six pages and explains how the OPG can help kids in the child protection system through our community visitors and child advocates. We hope that the new brochure will help to spread the message to children and young people about how the OPG can give them a voice.
Watch CREATE’s Snap that Stigma video, featuring 8 young people who share their experiences and perspectives on the issue of stigma and discrimination while in care. It is hoped that hearing their voices inspires change to the preconceived views that some people may have about young people with a care experience.
The purpose of OPG is to advocate for the human rights of our clients. For our adult clients, this means advocating for their rights, access to services, independence and choice as part of a supported decision-making model. For our children and young people clients, this means advocating for their rights, access to services and where appropriate, their independence and choice.
Understand what we do to protect the rights and interests of adults with impaired decision making capacity and children and young people in the child protection system.
