Child Friendly Cities and Communities Charter

The Child Friendly Cities and Communities Charter was launched in 2013. The Charter is a statement of the principles and actions that underpin the right to be considered child friendly.

Recognising the need for increased participation by children in decision making forums and creating child friendly environments, we support the following principles: 

  • Freedom for children to experience environments that consider their needs
  • Respect and dignity for children to express their individual opinions, participate in and contribute to decisions about their communities and wellbeing
  • Equitable access to supportive environments and services for children regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion or ability

The Child Friendly Cities and Communities Toolkit provides tips and guidance about the Charter, what the child friendly principles mean in practice and the steps involved in having the Charter endorsed.
