The rights to which all children and young people under age of 18 are entitled to are set out internationally in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The UNCRC was drawn up in 1989 and to ensure that universal rights of children are upheld throughout the world. It sets out these fundamental rights in 41 articles, which can be viewed in the policy section of this website.
Children’s rights are at the heart of Children in Wales’ work as we strive to ensure that they are upheld in Wales. All our work therefore relates to children’s rights in some way. We do however carry out some pieces of work relating more specifically to the promotion of children’s rights and the UNCRC. These include:
- Co-ordination of the Children and Families Practice Exchange Group in South Wales
- Co-ordination of the Children and Young People’s Rights Practice Exchange Group in North Wales
- Hosting a website providing a number or resources relating to Participation
- Providing children’s rights training
- Representation on the UNCRC Monitoring Group, a group made up of NGOs monitoring the implementation of the UNCRC in Wales.
