Children And Young People’s Commissioner Scotland

Your Human Rights

As a person, you have rights which apply to everyone in the world.  As a young person you have other rights too.  These are listed in a document called the UN Convention on the Rights of the CHILD, or UNCR.

Human rights can be confusing.  If your rights aren’t respected it isn’t always clear what you can do, and it can be hard to find an explanation of how rights all work in the first place.

Whether the issues about you, a child or another young person you know get help, information and advice about your human rights.  You can also find out the ways you could get involved in what the Children’s Commissioner for Scotland and his team by clicking on link below
