INTRODUCTION

As part of Barnardo’s ongoing commitment to protecting Children’s Rights and amplifying the Voice of the Child, Barnardo’s has developed an ambitious strategy to further support and facilitate young people sharing their voices and influencing change.

In May 2019, EiA designed and delivered a two day national programme which focused on employability skills and personal development for the young people who they support.

The programme taught me to always think positively about your future.

I learnt to never give up and believe in yourself.

It was good to grow with other people and I now feel capable of doing anything.
