Using a rights based approach Investing in Children creates spaces in which children and young people can come together, discuss issues and develop arguments through research, then support them to enter into dialogue with adults who have the power to act on their agenda.

Investing in Children has extensive experience working with children and young people across a wide range of issues to identify what they consider to be important and to raise these issues with decision-makers.

In addition to this, Investing in Children supports children and young people to work in partnership with decision-makers, undertaking research, evaluations and reviews with a wider range of children and young people.

Investing in Children is funded through a variety of sources for example contracts with Durham County Council and Local CCG's as well as grants from the Heritage Lottery, Awards for All and County Durham Community Foundations (to name a few).

As an organisation we work locally, regionally, nationally and internationally and our projects vary in length.
