UNCRC (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child)

Article Contents

The vision is that Scotland is a  place where children’s human rights are embedded in all aspects of society. This means that all decision making takes account of children’s rights and where all children have a voice and are empowered to defend their human rights.

We want to recognise, respect and promote children’s rights. These include rights to be treated fairly, to be heard and to be as healthy as possible.

Parents and families, communities, local and national governments, and organisations which work with children and families, all play a critical role in helping children understand and experience their rights. 

We are taking steps to ensure that children enjoy their rights, as set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

The poster below details children’s rights under the UNCRC.
