Umhlali has developed a child protection poster for organisations rendering direct services to children. The poster has been designed to be generic for any organisation so that anyone can make use of it. The posters are designed to be laminated so that the user can write their contact details in flipchart pen and then erase it with soap and warm water should then details need to be updated.
The purpose of the posters is to ensure that all children accessing services have the contact details of the correct organisational person to whom they can make complaints about any issues relating to child safety and welfare. These issues could arise from the way that the organisation renders its services to children, as well as from outside the organisation (the child’s welfare at home or school).
400 posters have been printed and will be distributed to the Umhlali stakeholders during Child Protection Week at the end of the month.
The poster is also available as a PDF download.
