Established in 1996, Children’s Parliament is a national charity that helps make children’s rights a reality across Scotland. Through rights-based creative practice, we offer children from diverse backgrounds the chance to share their experiences, thoughts, and feelings, ultimately influencing positive change in their lives.
Children’s rights, gathered together in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), aim to ensure that every child is treated with kindness, empathy, trust and dignity. When we talk to children about their rights, we explain how these rights keep them healthy, happy, and safe. We also talk about the importance of relationships. At Children’s Parliament, we work with children to build relationships based on mutual respect and understanding that provide opportunities for children to share their experiences, thoughts and feelings.
Within the project, Children’s Parliament facilitates and supports the Children and Families panel to ensure that the lived experiences, insights and voices of rights holders are the foundation of the Framework, Training Plan and associated resources being developed.
Children’s Parliament is a Scottish Charity (SC026247).
