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

The Formentera Office of Youth report that yesterday's issue of the Official Gazette of the Balearic Islands (Butlletí Oficial de les Illes Balears, BOIB) features notice of approval by the Director General of the Balearic Office of Children, Youth and Families (Direcció General de Infància, Joventut i Famílies, DGIJF) of protocol to detect, communicate, evaluate, treat and monitor cases of abuse in non-school leisure activities for children and youth.

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.

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".
