  • Scottish Government - Taking a Children's Human Rights Approach Guidance

    Created: 11/01/2024
    News/Events Category: Children and Families


    The purpose of this guidance is to provide information and resources to support public authorities and other organisations to implement a children’s human rights approach.

    This may also assist public authorities to meet their current duties under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 and to prepare for their duties under section 6 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation)(Scotland) Bill, which would place a duty on public authorities not to act incompatibly with the ‘UNCRC requirements’ as defined by section 1 of the Bill.

    The content of the guidance consists of the following sections:

    • An introduction to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)
    • An introduction to the UNCRC (Incorporation)(Scotland) Bill
    • Methods to embed children’s human rights approaches in practice: decision-making; budget allocation; inclusive communication; awareness raising, participation of children, child friendly complaints and advocacy, including case studies, good practice examples and further resources
    • Links to other relevant policy areas
