My Child’s Rights
Your child has rights.
In fact, every child under the age of 18 has their own set of rights, on top of the human rights that people of all ages have.
These are called children’s rights, and they’re written in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
They outline what children need to give them the best chance of growing up happy, healthy, and safe.
Adults such as parents, schools, councils and governments have a responsibility to make sure that children get their rights.
