The Children and Young People's Commissioner for Scotland's office has several free copies of a booklet explaining the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to children and young people.


The booklet:

  • explains what rights are and why they matter,
  • summarises the rights set out in the Convention, and
  • provides contact details for a number of organisations in Scotland that can help children and young people realise their rights.

The booklet would make a good educational resource.

The booklet was produced in partnership with the Scottish Government.
