The SHINE Booklets: Towards a Brighter future for all children: Because Every Child Has a Right to be Safe

"The content has been developed, with the dedicated support of our ISPCC Children’s Advisory Committee and CYPSC Sub group members in Monaghan, to help empower young people impacted by domestic violence to express their emotions more effectively and to better recognise appropriate and inappropriate relationships.Monaghan CYPSC member Michelle Treanor, a Therapeutic Support Worker with the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC), brought her insights and experience from engaging with children, young people and families to bear throughout the development of the ‘Shine’ booklets.  Monaghan CYPSC is greatly appreciative of her commitment and expertise.

There are three age appropriate booklets and guidelines on Children First, Domestic Violence training and Capacitar training that support workers should be aware of before they use the SHINE booklets with young people.

DISCUSSING THE DISCO(Outcome 3: Safe and Protected from Harm)

This Leaflet was developed by members of the Monaghan Youth Networks sub group with support from the Monaghan Joint Policing Committee and was funded by Monaghan Children and Young People Services Committee Seed Funding.

The “Discussing the Disco” leaflet provides practical information and discussion tips for parents on how to ensure their child is safe and protected from harm on a night out. The leaflet has been created as part of a wider interagency initiative, which is working with a number of stakeholders, including nightclub owners and bus companies, to address safety issues for young people attending teenage discos in the county.
