About the webinar:
Children and young people have a right to express their opinions on things that concern them.
To facilitate Barnahus and similar setups to hear about how children experience their service, PROMISE has developed a Child Participation Tool. The tool focusses on the child’s experience of Barnahus, including the travel to Barnahus, their experience in Barnahus, coming home from Barnahus and potential follow up or mid-to-long term treatment in Barnahus or by a mobile Barnahus team.
Join this webinar to walk through the tool with the author Olivia Lind Haldorsson, and to discuss with your European colleagues about approaches and considerations for soliciting children’s views on their Barnahus experience.
