On 2 July 2018, the Scottish Government published An Action Plan 2018-21: Consultation on Progressing Children's Rights in Scotland - An Action Plan 2018-21.
 
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child - what is it?
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is an international treaty that sets out the rights that all children and young people under the age of 18 have. 
  
What are Rights?
Rights are about making sure people are treated well and get a fair deal.  They set out the sorts of things that must be put in place for this to happen.  Everybody has rights.  Children’s rights are human rights.  The rights set out in the UNCRC include, for example, the right of children and young people to an education, good quality health care, to be protected from being hurt or badly treated and the right to relax and play. 
 
Please complete this shortened version of that consultation, designed for children and young people to complete so we can gain their views on the Action Plan..
