Publication “Voices for change. Methodological guide for consulting children, girls and adolescents who are in residential care” by Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo for UNICEF Spain

Portada de la guía "Voces para el cambio", by Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo, for UNICEF Spain

The modification that was made of the Law of Protection of Children in Spain with the approval of the law 16/2015, later reinforced by Law 8/2021, the 4 June, of Comprehensive Protection of Children and Adolescents against violence represents a challenge for the protection system in many ways. But there is one especially relevant: guarantee the full implementation of the right to participation of children, girls and adolescents under protection measures. A challenge in which very significant progress has been made in recent years, but that is still far from being a reality.

Phone Voices for change. Methodological guide for consulting children, girls and adolescents in residential care, published by UNICEF Spain, aims to be a methodological instrument to achieve this challenge. Its objective is to propose a methodology to carry out consultations with children, girls and adolescents in residential care. A methodology that considers the specificities of this population in order to guarantee legitimate participatory processes, meaningful and protective. A methodology that raises the consultations as one more element in a process of internal transformation of the protection homes until reaching a greater degree of protagonism of the boys and girls over their own lives.. And a methodology that can then be adapted to different query objects.

But above all it aims to provide a tool to professionals, entities and institutions of the protection system that decide to evaluate their work to increase its rigor and quality. Children, girls and adolescents are the recipients of the work of the protection system. Therefore, any evaluation process, improvement or quality that you want to promote will not be legitimate if it is not part of the needs assessment and proposals for improvement that the children themselves, girls and adolescents carry out.

Sometimes you don't wonder because you don't know how. Sometimes because you are afraid of the answer. The guide we have developed Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo aims to remove the first of the two obstacles. Winning the second is already an institutional and professional decision of the protection system in each autonomous community, and the management and educational team of each foster home.

Here we have the recording of the session:

We hope that the guide will be useful and that you will find us at the presentation.

Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo
