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 final of three project seminars, a two-day event drew together the crucial points of discussion from the previous events and focused even more closely on the voices and perspectives of young people and children.
If you missed the event, or would like to catch up on the discussions from throughout the day you can check out the vibrant social media action here.
