Aged 16-25? Help us build the Bairns’ Hoose

The Children and Young People’s Centre for Justice (CYCJ) is calling for 16 to 25 year olds with experience of child protection or the justice system to help it shape a set of standards for Scotland’s Bairns Hoose.

Bairns’ Hoose – based on an Icelandic model “Barnahus” – will bring together children’s services in a ‘four rooms’ approach with child protection, health, justice and recovery services all made available in one setting – reducing the number of times children have to recount their experiences to different professionals.

CYCJ will work together with children and young people in a safe and trusted environment, using creative approaches to reflect on the draft standards, encourage discussion and facilitate the sharing of views and ideas.

This is a unique opportunity for young people who have experienced these issues to develop a trauma informed and rights-respecting service that will help children and young people throughout Scotland. Participants will be compensated for their time, and supported throughout.

If you are aged 16-25 years old and have been a victim or witness to abuse or violence (or know someone who has and may wish to be involved), we’d love to hear from you. Please email to find out more or discuss.
