Date: 2nd September 2014
Category: Reporting to and monitoring the UNCRC

What are your views & experiences of the fulfillment of children's rights in Scotland? Together is seeking written evidence to inform its State of Children's Rights report.

Together is keen to receive your views and experiences of the fulfilment of children's rights in Scotland. Evidence can cover any area of children and young people's lives, their rights or services affecting them.

Please outline areas of progress / any obstacles that you have encountered in working with or for children or young people to improve the fulfilment of their rights.

Evidence should relate to the period between August 2013 - present.

Your evidence will inform the Together State of Children's Rights in Scotland report 2014 which will be launched on 20th November 2014 (International Children's Day). The report will provide a non-government perspective on the extent to which children in Scotland are able to enjoy their rights; recommend the next steps that should be taken to improve children's rights in Scotland and provide a point of referral against which future efforts can be assessed.

Your evidence will also help Together to prioritise its work over the next 12 months.

The timescale is tight; therefore we would be very grateful for responses as soon as possible. Any evidence should please be sent to Emma Grindulis at by Wednesday 1st October 2014.

Please circulate to anyone in your organisation, project or service and networks who may be willing to respond.
