The Children’s Voices project involved consulting children about the enhancement of Rotary Park, a playground near the centre of Broadmeadows.

Funded under the federal Communities for Children initiative, it was undertaken by the Brotherhood in partnership with the City of Hume.

Since asking children to help shape the services which impact them is relatively rare in Australia, researchers carefully documented the consultation process and developed guidelines to inform other efforts to involve children.
