Article 12 UNCRC Awareness Survey

Categories: General measures of implementation and Respect for the views of the child

7th February 2011

The Centre for Rural Childhood based at the Perth College UHI, is seeking your assistance with an action-based research project promoting Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), namely the right of children to be heard and have their views respected in all matters affecting them.

This important project will raise awareness and develop tools to promote a wider and deeper understanding of children's rights amongst professionals and key stakeholders and also help the research team to identify gaps in training and practice from which to build appropriate training materials and resources.

A vital component of this project is understanding the educational needs of professionals so as to achieve greater awareness and understanding of Article 12 and its implementation.
