Truth & Lies
We are excited to announce the launch of our new app and DVD.
For children’s evidence to be used in criminal or family proceedings, they need to demonstrate their understanding of the difference between truth and lies.
Developed with children, and tried and tested in more than 200 police interviews and criminal trials, these brief (10-20 second) film clips show real children telling the truth or telling lies about events proven to engage children and young people.
Triangle has been working alongside the RCPCH to find out what children, young people, parents, carers and professionals think about the proposed Disability e-Learning Portal. More than 200 children and young people were consulted, and more than 1000 adults.
Across all stakeholder groups it was suggested that people think they will learn best about disability from the perspectives and experiences of the disabled child and young person.
As summarised by one of the young people who took part: If everyone was the same in this world life would be a torment. We need people that are different.
Triangle is an independent organisation working with children across the UK. Triangle's mission is to reposition children and young people in society as competent communicators and active agents in their own lives.
See photos and find out about more in our Autumn Enews.
We can provide single expert reports, but most of our assessments are undertaken by small multidisciplinary teams, who produce a single report with clear shared conclusions.
If the child or young person is a suspect or defendant in a criminal case you can contact us directly for an intermediary. The courts have powers to appoint and fund intermediaries for vulnerable defendants in the interests of a fair trial. The police have discretion to fund intermediaries for suspect interviews.
Triangle supports children and young people to express their views about the things that matter to them.
Triangle provides a unique and flexible range of services for children and young people up to age 19 who present with sexually concerning behaviours (SCB).
We provide training across the UK led by experienced trainers who are in direct practice with children. We also undertake research independently and in collaboration with others.
