How to create a safe environment in a children’s organisation? A manual by Galaxy Charity Foundation
Security policy for children

Discussing abuse with teenagers can be very difficult. But one of the most important things you can do to prevent these situations is to openly discuss the issue with teenagers. Our comics “I am not afraid: five stories for 14- to 17-year-olds” can help you start the dialogue. Use the stories from the comics to talk to teenagers about the situations that can occur in children’s organisations, to explain how to ensure their own safety and the safety of others, and where to go for help. The options for exiting difficult situations described in the comics are not the only ones that exist. You can discuss other options. Encourage teenagers to ask questions and express their opinions.
