The seminars will draw on the findings of Together's State of Children's Rights Report (2011), and will explore how progress can be made towards achieving the recommendations. They will also look at the Scottish Government's progress in delivering the actions identified in its UNCRC action plan Do the Right Thing (2008).

Sessions will include looking at national developments concerning children's rights, such as the Scottish Government's recent consultation on the Rights of Children and Young People bill and forthcoming Children's Services bill. They will take into account the context of the current financial climate in which many children's organisations are faced with cutting or making significant changes to the services they provide.
