Together has released their annual State of Children’s Rights Report survey!
To follow the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill being passed in March 2021, this year’s report aims to inspire and empower everyone in Scotland ahead of the Bill’s implementation. It will offer practical guidance on implementing children’s rights-based approaches, support on overcoming challenges and case studies of promising practice. The report will be shared with all levels of government, NGOs and professionals.
But Together needs your experiences and expertise to help shape the report! The survey aims to identify:
1. The challenges you have faced (or expect to face) regarding implementing a children’s rights-based approach in your work.
2. Examples of promising practice of children’s rights-based approaches, either from your own work or the work of others
Together will also use the survey findings to help shape a webinar series to be held in autumn. These will be open to Together members to share learning and build their capacity to overcome challenges.
You can access the survey here. On this link you will also find an easy-read and child-friendly version of the survey. Children and young people are encouraged to participate and, where possible, Together ask you to share direct quotes from children and young people in your responses.
This survey will take between approximately 10 minutes and 1 hour, depending on how many questions you choose to answer and how much detail you include. The closing date for participating is July 30th2021.
