2020 marks the start of the journey towards the next examination of Government’s progress in implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
Children in Wales, with our partners in the Wales UNCRC Monitoring Group, has embarked on a project, funded by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), to deliver a series of activities for organisations in Wales to help them identify the key priority children’s rights issues. Following two events* and gathering over 70 pieces of evidence, we are now finalising the State of Children’s Rights in Wales report, which will be developed and submitted to the UN before the end of the year to inform the 2021-22 UK review.
A copy of the slides that were presented at the virtual report launch event, on 10 December 2020, can be downloaded below.
Two online capacity building and consultation events were held on 24 and 27 August 2020, both of which were very well attended and delegates thoroughly enjoyed. Please find below some information that was shared at the events, together with answers to some of the questions raised:
