Read our State of Children's Rights Report 2022!

The report seeks to inspire and enable everyone in Scotland to put children’s human rights at the heart of everything they do.

Working closely with our members, we have highlighted the importance of children’s participation, child rights budgeting, impact assessments, inclusive communications and more, alongside examples of promising practice, tips and resources to support and inspire others.

We hope our report can serve as a roadmap for all levels of government, the Scottish Parliament, organisations and practitioners as we move towards implementation of the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill.
