UN Children's Rights Article of the Week - 26

Published on:

This week’s article of the week is… Article 26: My family should get the money they need to help bring me up.

Article 26 of the UNCRC says that children and young people should get financial support from the State when their parents or guardians are unable to provide them with a good enough standard of living by themselves.

Some of the reasons this might be the case include:

  • illness
  • disability
  • old age.

Getting Support 

While in most cases financial support for children and young people will be given to a parent or guardian, in some cases they can access benefits directly. Parents or guardians shouldn’t control a child or young person's access to financial support or stop them from getting the support they need.
