New protocol to spot and report cases of child abuse in extracurricular programmes

Vanessa Parellada, Councillor of Youth and Citizen Participation, has discussed the protocol with local associations to ensure they have the tools to report violence against minors, regardless of immediate attention that victims may be receiving, per Articles 15 and 16 of Organic Law 8/2021 (4 June) on comprehensive protection of children and adolescents against violence.

Click here to view the protocol in Catalan and Spanish as well as the form to register for DGIJF's targetted training courses organised in association with the Youth Agency of the Balearic Islands (Institut Balear de la Joventut, IBJove) to help spot and report these cases.

Councillor Parellada told association representatives that "since some of you organise activities for children, we believe it is necessary to ensure that this training reaches as far possible, and work together to spot abuse and contribute to a safer and fairer world for our children".
