The child-friendly version of the State of Children’s Rights report 2019 was designed to appeal to our young readers, providing them an overview of the main issues and developments around children's rights in Scotland. It includes an introduction and 2-page info-sheet for each of the report's chapters. The introduction briefly explains the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child, the role of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, and what the report is about. The info-sheets follow a similar structure, explaining what issues are covered in the particular chapter, what the UN Committee's recommendations were, how Scottish Government has addressed these issues, what children and Together have said and what next steps needed.
