Special credit
  • We are extremely grateful to students from Rookery School, Lincolnshire Secure Unit, who created the prototype for the ‘Your life, your feelings’ icon. Excellent!
  • Special credit also goes to students at William Henry Smith School who selected the icons for ‘Where you live’, ‘When things are difficult’ and ‘Moving and leaving’. Great choices!
  • Young people in Cookham Wood young offender institution said our site’s name should immediately communicate what it’s about. One of you suggested rights4children, which is what we went with. Thank you!
