Welcome to the UNCRC Reporting Process Survey - Your Voice Matters!

What is the UNCRC?

The UNCRC is an important international agreement which promises to protect children and young people’s rights. The Convention on the Rights of the Child has 54 articles which cover all aspects of a young person’s life, including: the definition of a child, the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that every child and young person is intitled to, and the responsibilities of adults and governments to ensure these rights are met. These rights are all interconnected, of equal importance and cannot be taken away – regardless of status, to do so is discrimination.

What is the UNCRC Reporting Process?

The UNCRC Reporting Process presents an opportunity for Non-Government Organisations [NGOs], Civil Society Organisations [CSOs] and National Human Rights Bodies and Agencies to present evidence concerning children and young people’s rights to the international legal body responsible for monitoring the implementation of the UNCRC. As well as offering an alternative view-point of governmental policies, the Reporting Process can be a route for organisations to influence political, legislative and practice agendas.

We want to hear from you!

We must ensure the voices of the most marginalised and seldom-heard groups of young people in Scotland are heard – in their own words, on their own terms and according to their own realities.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented us with unprecedented difficulties in delivering our face-to-face workshops, by filling in this short questionnaire, you will help to inform the content of our next Alternative Report – amplifying not only your voice and how you feel about your rights, but also the needs of your community: what needs to change and how you want to see this change happen.
