Getting It Right: Wales Launches Helpline For Ignored Children

Getting it Right is a new plan launched by the Wales Assembly government to support children in having their voices heard. The government funded helpline will support children when they feel ignored or are dealing with personal issues such as bullying, parental divorce and changing schools. Accessible by phone, text, e-mail or instant messaging, Getting it Right is part of a larger children’s advocacy initiative. The main goal is to protect children’s rights and promote positive images of them by tackling bullying and providing opportunities to engage in music, the arts and athletics.
