Scottish Government has produced an updated report on how it is addressing 11 recommendations from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child during the pandemic.

The UN Committee’s 11 recommendations set out how governments should protect children's human rights during the crisis. These included recommendations about online learning, healthcare, child protection services, participation in decision-making and provision of child-friendly information.

Scottish Government’s report follows earlier versions which Together analysed. Together intends to analyse the most recent report in due course.
