Together’s Development Survey!

Date: 1st September 2015

Together is conducting research to inform the development of a potential new training programme on children's rights, especially relating to the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.

The Act places duties on public bodies to report on steps they have taken to implement the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) every three years. The duties will commence in 2017, and the first report is due in 2020.

In this context, Together is investigating the possibility of developing a training programme that will assist organisations to support or take forward these new duties. As part of our research we are mapping the training that is already being provided by charities so that we can look at addressing any gaps in provision.

However we are also keen to hear from charities that might themselves be interested in receiving training on children's rights, especially relating to the Act or the UNCRC.

Therefore, we would be very grateful if you could take ten minutes to fill out our short survey on your organisation's training needs by Monday 14 September 2015.

If you think this survey would also be appropriate for another member of staff at your organisation, please do forward the survey on to them.

Please feel free to contact Katie Walsh ( for more information or if you have any questions.
