Amplifying lesser heard voices in child safeguarding
We believe that all voices matter & that all voices should be heard
Welcome to Listen Up
Hear from our Directors Jahnine & Nick to find out more about Listen Up and how we support professionals and organisations to strengthen practice, research and policy.
Moving beyond a universal lens
Our work is underpinned by intersectional thinking. This means we acknowledge, explore and remain curious about all aspects of a person’s identity and how these influence their individual and systemic experiences.
We believe by applying intersectionality we are able to better meet the needs of marginalised and minoritised children and young people.
Intersectionality provides an opportunity to challenge universal thinking when working with children, young people and families in practice, policy and research.
Adultification is a core strand of Listen Up’s work.
This article explores the impact this form of bias can have on children victimised by child criminal exploitation. To find out more about adultification please check out our short clip on our approaches page.
