This session aims to raise the awareness of the rights of children and young people. It will be an interactive session, using case studies with an emphasis on participation by those attending. All participants will receive detailed handouts to take away.
It has been widely recognised that children and young people have a relatively low awareness of their rights. They also have a comparatively high rate of success in terms of vindicating their rights.
This course is part of Clan Childlaw’s national promotion and awareness-raising around the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), especially relevant at the moment given the new reporting duties introduced by the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 in relation to UNCRC.
Who should attend?
We wish to encourage professionals from the third sector who are working with looked-after children and their families.
About the Training Organisation
Clan Childlaw aims to improve the life chances for children and young people in Scotland by making sure that every young person has access to the legal advice they need, and by securing the recognition and enforcement of their rights.
