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.

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