Universal Periodic Review

Date: 17th April 2012
Author: Together

2008's UPR review of the UK's human rights record raised a number of important issues relating to children's rights. The second UPR review of the UK takes place in May 2012.

Together has been working with Save the Children and the Wales UNCRC Monitoring Group to try ensure that the issues of child poverty and incorporation of the UNCRC into law are raised at the UK review.

We have also been working with SCCYP and Families Outside to highlight issues faced by children of prisoners.
