Young people in North Lanarkshire have created a new campaign to raise awareness of children’s rights

Date: 14th March 2022
Category: Awareness-raising


The group of nine young people from Cardinal Newman, St Ambrose, Willowbank and Clyde Valley High schools developed, created and appeared in the multi-media 'Make it Right' campaign. 

The campaign encourages other young people to be aware of their rights, as well as adults and public sector organisations to assist in their protection. The campaign follows research that revealed that although 96% of young people in North Lanarkshire indicated they were aware of children's rights, 38% stated they had no knowledge of the UNCRC. Also, 41% stated they didn't believe the people in their lives were aware of children's rights. The new effort, which includes a video campaign to 'carry on' the children's rights message using #makeitright, will be published on social media, outdoor billboards, and other digital platforms and will include young people themselves.
