Recognising the rights of all children, all the time

A new article on Together's blog reflects on the 25th anniversary of the UNCRC and that it is time for all of us to recognise the rights of all children, all the time.

The article is written by Sarah Roberts from Families Outside and reports on the many positive steps being taken in Scotland to ensure that children are seen as rights holders, but reminds us that a significant number of Scotland's children go unnoticed within the very structures that are designed to protect them.

The article links to case studies which have been included in Together's State of Children's Rights report 2014 (being launched today; International Children's Day 2014), which highlight the need for everyone to recognise children as rights holders and to ensure that children's rights are at the heart of all decisions affecting them.

The article concludes that it is up to all of us to challenge attitudes and practices to ensure children's rights are respected.

Together's blog is an exciting space to learn more about children's rights and where regular guest articles are published.
