NEWS: Together 2021 'State of Children's Rights in Scotland' Survey open till 30th July

27 July 2021

On behalf of Together (Scottish Alliance for Children's Rights), we're kindly asking for your input into the State of Children's Rights survey before Friday, 30th July! Please read the information below from Together to learn more about the survey and why your input is needed.  

About the survey!

Each year, with your help we produce a State of Children’s Rights Report. These reports monitor Scotland’s progress in implementing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and wider international human rights treaties. We would be grateful if you could help inform our report!

To follow the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill being passed in March 2021, this year’s report aims to offer practical guidance on implementing children’s rights-based approaches, support on overcoming challenges and include case studies of promising practice. The report will be shared with all levels of government, NGOs and professionals.

We 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 capacity to overcome children's rights challenges.

What we need your help with!

We need your ideas to help shape the report and to do this, we'd love it if you could respond to our survey and share the following:

  • The challenges you have faced (or expect to face) regarding implementing a children’s rights-based approach in your work.
  • Examples of promising practice of children’s rights-based approaches, either from your own work or the work of others.

**Please note - You don't need to respond to every survey question!**


We have created an Easy Read version and for children and young people, a child-friendly version too! Both of these versions can be accessed using the links below and sent back to us at: before the 30th July 2021. If you have completed the Easy Read survey and feel comfortable doing so, please complete the 'About You' form attached below.

Thank you all so much in advance!
