This guide is part advocacy document to promote children’s participation and part programme guide. It is not a tool kit. Working with children and supporting their participation requires experience and adherence to certain principles and standards. Relief agencies planning to involve children in their work will require specialist support from other agencies and individuals who have practical experience working with children.
