UN Children's Rights Article of the Week

Monday, October 15, 2018

This week's Article of the Week is...

Article 25:

You have the right to have your living arrangements checked regularly if you are living away from home.

What does that mean?

Article 25 of the UNCRC says that the State should check up on the care, protection and health of children and young people when they’re away from their families, and that steps should be taken to make these better if they aren’t good enough.

This article applies where a child or young person is in the State’s care and where they're in private institutions. It exists to protect a child or young person and their rights when they're away from your home, making sure their best interests are acted on.
