UN Children's Rights Article of the Week

Monday, May 06, 2019

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

Article 20:

You have the right to special protection and help if you can’t live with your parents.

What does this mean?

Article 20 of the UNCRC says that children and young people have the right to special protection and help if they can’t live with your parents. In many cases, this will involve going into care.

Rights and Care

Children and young people have the right to go into care, and to have their rights respected when they are there. There should be independent checks to make sure that their rights are respected, especially if they are disabled or a refugee.

The opinions of children and young people in care should be listened to and taken seriously. They must have the freedom to do things they want to do and be able to grow up safely and happily.
