Fourteen kids to hold Save the Children to account

Save the Children is flying children from around the world to the UK to meet trustees and hold the charity to account.

The charity’s first Global Children’s Panel will see 14 children from Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Liberia, Mongolia, South Africa and the UK meet trustees and senior staff to tell them what they think about the work the charity is doing.

“It’s about them holding the board of trustees to account,” a Save the Children spokeswoman said. “They will talk about the issues that are affecting them in their home countries and help us ensure that the children’s viewpoint is right at the heart of what we do.”

The young people, aged between 12 and 17, are all closely involved with the charity’s work in their home countries. They will be involved in a series of meetings with the charity’s trustees and senior directors all this week.
