Getting it right for children and families

The rights of children and young people are set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The Convention sets out what a child can expect from others as a result of their government’s commitment to respect their rights.

The Scottish Government has made a commitment to make sure that the UNCRC is a reality in Scotland – that children’s rights are recognised and their voices heard and listened to.

This document proposes that 'Getting it right for every child' will help make the UNCRC a reality for children and young people in Scotland.
