The Stigma in Childhood programme seeks to address the unique issues for children who experience stigma, as well as common issues which allow learning from the experience of stigma in adulthood. In this, it considers how stigma is experienced by children from different places, and how it manifests itself; for children themselves, in families and communities, and in provision of services. Bringing together learning from theory, research, policy and practice, it will promote change for children and young people living with stigma and marginalisation.
In the second of three project seminars, this event centred on experiencing and measuring stigma in childhood, bringing together researchers, practitioners, and care experienced young people for a day of discussions and debate.
