The Advocate for
Children and Young People (ACYP):
Seen and Heard
Maitree collaborated with the NSW Advocate for Children and Young People, Andrew Johnson, and ACYP staff to produce this short campaign video to accompany the release of their Three Year Whole of Government Strategy outlining their response to children and young people's needs in NSW.
The video was made after thousands of children and young people across NSW were consulted on what they felt was important to their lives. One key area theme young people bought up was the importance of being listened to and consulted, no matter what age or background. The campaign piece was developed with this in mind - demonstrating examples of small moments when adults dont realise we're not really listening to our children and young people - and what happens when we stop, listen and take responsibility.
