Our safety counts: key findings from the Australian Survey of Kids and Young People - Help-seeking and institutional responses to safety concerns
The Research to Practice Series links the findings of research undertaken by the Institute of Child Protection Studies, Australian Catholic University, to the development of policy and practice in the area of child, youth and family welfare. This issue presents the key findings from the ASK-YP Survey, an online survey of children and young people aged 10-18, which explored their perceptions of interpersonal safety in institutions. It builds on Issue 13, which focused on what children and young people said they need, and how well they thought institutions are doing. This release, Issue 14, explores children and young people’s views about help-seeking and institutional responses to their safety concerns.
