Who are we?
We are youth@clc - a youth advisory panel within the Children's Law Centre. We are aged 14-18 years old, come from various walks of life and we want to make sure young people’s voices are listened to and are taken seriously by the people who make decisions about our lives. We want to make Children's Rights a reality for all children and young people.
What do we do?
Our government signed up to the UNCRC in 1991, which means they made a promise to all children and young people here, that they would protect all of our rights.
Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child says that all children and young people have the right to an opinion and for that opinion to be listened to and taken seriously.
We talk directly to...
- Local Councils
- Teachers and youth workers
- Other young people
...about issues that affect all young people.
- Tell government want you think about issues affecting young people where you live
- Get involved in Rights in Action Campaigns and make a difference
- Tell other young people about their rights
