Bus on roadshow

Children’s Commissioner is opening up virtual sessions to connect with children and young people across Scotland.

The Children’s Commissioner wants to know how children’s rights have been upheld, when rights haven’t been respected, what’s gone wrong or been very difficult, what barriers were in place to stop children’s rights from being upheld and what needs to be done to fix it. They are keen to hear about all issues involving children and young people such as poverty, education, mental health, climate justice, play, participation, youth justice, and making their rights real in law.

To apply, please email administration@cypcs.org.uk and include the following details:

  • The name of your organisation;
  • The lead person we should contact;
  • Some background and information about your group;
  • The ages of the children and young people, and how many are in your group;
  • Any specific support needs;
  • Theme/ideas that the group wants to cover in the session.

The virtual sessions will take place until 31st March 2022, so don’t miss out!
