Children & Young People


Its important for you to remember that YOU have the right to be safe, for example, at home, school, on the street and even on the internet. It is the responsibility of adults to protect you and make you safer.  This includes parents, carers, teachers, learning mentors, doctors, nurses, social workers, police officers, faith leaders and sports coaches to name a few.  If you’ve got a problem or you are worried about someone else, it can be hard to know what to do. But you don’t have to cope on your own. YOU have the right to grow up safe from people hurting you or failing to ensure that you are cared for.

In our section for children and young people, you can find a range of useful resources that provide information, advice and support.

The City of London Corporation recognises and values the important role young people can play in the development of its services. The City Youth Forum is an opportunity for any young person, aged 11-19 (or up-to 25 with SEND) who lives, works or studies within the Square Mile.
