UK Children's Commissioners' midterm report to the UK State Party on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Midterm report by the four Children's Commissioners that has been written in the context of their continued and ongoing dialogue with each UK administration and tier of government.

It is not a comprehensive assessment of every Article in the UNCRC. Instead it has collected evidence from their work focused on five areas: participation, disabled children, child poverty, children seeking asylum and juvenile justice. Where there is evidence it affirms progress but where there is demonstrable lack of improvement in children and young people’s lives, concerns are voiced.
