Young Scot is the national youth information and citizenship charity for 11 to 26-year-olds in Scotland. We support young people to thrive and make the most of their lives as they grow up. We do this by providing universal services for young people, combined with targeted and bespoke support to address stigma, inequalities and inaccessibility. Supporting young people to thrive is a powerful way to provide reassurance in times of challenge, help build confidence and resilience, and to have fun!
We are committed to ensuring the UNCRC is at the heart of everything we do. Many of the rights within the UNCRC align with the services that we provide for young people. From opportunities to learn about topics that are important to them – to taking part in volunteering opportunities and sharing power with decision-makers. By embedding the UNCRC in our services, we support young people to understand, claim and exercise their rights
