About the Children's Panel

This video was created by the 2022 - 2023 Children's Panel as a way to welcome other children to Baboró. Learn more about this year's panel here.

The Children’s Panel plays an important role in shaping our work to make all children feel welcome and represented at Baboró. The panel is made up of children from across Galway city and county in 4th/5th class.

From September until June, the panel meets each month for creative workshops with Baboró Artist in Residence Maisie Lee and Outreach Projects Manager Bry Hussey. Each member of the Children’s Panel brings their vibrant curiosity, interests and talents to each meeting. These monthly meetings ensure their input is a regular part of Baboró’s planning and decision-making.

The Baboró Children's Panel is supported the Ombudsman for Children's Office.
