BRISBRIS (Children's Rights in Society) is an NGO with no party political or religious affiliations that supports children in distress and is a link between children, adults and the community. All support services build on volunteer work and financial support, primarily from corporate cooperation and private persons, and to a small extent governmental grants.
The goal of BRIS’ support services is to strengthen the rights of children and young people and improve their living conditions, which is done with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child as a guide. BRIS' shall support vulnerable children and young people in particular, and provide opportunities for children and young people to conduct a dialogue with adults.
BRIS evaluation of webbased servicesThis is an executive summary of the report on BRIS’ effect study on its webbased child contacts, performed in 2011.
Children were asked just before, directly after the contact and ten days later, whether the contact with BRIS made any difference to them and if they found BRIS’ services helpful.
The children give high ratings to BRIS. They find BRIS’ services helpful, feel listened to and taken seriously, and their wellbeing and ability to handle their problems is significantly better just after the contact and even to some extent after ten days.
The BRIS ReportThe BRIS Report is BRIS’ annual report on calls , chats and e-mails to the Children’s Helpline, the BRIS-mail and the BRIS-chat.
Being BRIS’ main advocating tool in the work for Children’s rights in Sweden, the BRIS Report aims to mediate children’s voices by presenting the major trends from the last year’s contacts. The content is coverered through figures and analyses, as well as by short examples from calls and mails.
Common and focal areas are identified and outlined as a platform for BRIS' activities in the coming year, this year Mental illness being the main theme.
The Children, BRIS and IT
"The Children, BRIS and IT" is a result of BRIS’ involvement in the Safer Internet
Plus Programme and the "The Young Internet", a safer internet campaign run in
Sweden by the Swedish Media Council at the Government Offices. As part of the
campaign, we made this in-depth study of children’s contacts with us concerning Internet and other ICT-related issues, and translated it into English. In Sweden, the report was published in September, 2011.
