The Befriend a Child in detention project involves 4 activities:
THIS MATTERS TO ME CAMPAIGN
The This Matters To Me campaign is an opportunity for members of the public to tell politicians that ending the detention of children seeking asylum is an important issue, that needs to be addressed immediately.
LINKS NOT CHAINS PROGRAM
The Links Not Chains program is an opportunity for schools to show support for children held in detention and raise awareness about this important issue.
LOBBY FOR CHANGE
Ending the detention of children requires changes in government action. There are numerous ways to lobby for change, the best way is making sure your voice is heard. Speak with friends, family, workmates, and your member of Parliament about this important issue.
SENDING LETTERS AND BOOKS TO CHILDREN IN DETENTION
Befriend a Child in Detention are supporting children in detention by sending them books and letters from members of the Australian public.
