What rights do young people living in residential care have?

How can residential staff and managers implement the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child?

Why is participation important and how can adults help young people make decisions?

Where can young people get independent help and advice?

Children’s Rights and Participation in Residential Care, the first practical guide of its kind, clearly addresses these – and many other – issues which were central to residential care in the 1990s.

Arising from a two-year NCB project, this informative book charts the role of young people in developing and improving residential services and provides a comprehensive summary of research into young people’s experiences. After outlining the legal entitlements of young people who live in residential care, the book provides many useful suggestions about how staff and managers can increase young people’s participation.

Children’s Rights and Participation in Residential Care will prove invaluable to all those practitioners, managers and students who want to help create residential homes which respect and value the rights of young people.
