Children and Young People are integral to building a fairer and more sustainable world for everyone. Courageous Advocacy equips them with the skills, tools, confidence, and opportunity to speak up and take action on issues of justice. Courageous Advocacy is an integral part of the Church of England Education Office's vision for education.

The Children and Young People's hub at Christian Aid is dedicated to resourcing those who work with children and young people, to support their learning, not only to learn about global justice issues, but to provide tips and tools to support them to help shape the world around them through courageous advocacy and campaigning.

Our commitment is to support children and young people to use their agency with autonomy and freedom on the issues they care about. We provide learning and advocacy tools on themes and issues we work on that empower children and young people to make up their own minds and act accordingly.
