A fantastic new resource is now available for practitioners to help them when providing information to child migrants.

The Council of Europe have published “How to convey child-friendly information to children in migration: a handbook for frontline professionals,” a practical handbook  co-authored by pan-European experts in the field of child rights and migration, including MiCLU’s specialist children and young person’s immigration solicitor Anna Skehan.

Designed for use by frontline professionals working with children in migration in Europe, the handbook contains practical tips, golden rules, and examples of promising practice.

MiCLU supported this project in recognition of the fact that children’s rights are only meaningful when the child herself knows that she possesses the rights, and understands how to make them a reality.

We are excited to have had the opportunity to be involved in this project and hope that all those working to support refugee and migrant children will consider this an essential resource.
