CELCIS warmly welcome the opportunity to respond to the Equalities and Human Rights Committee’s call for views on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill.

We strongly support this progressive approach to promote systemic change through legislation for the promotion of children’s rights through incorporation of the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). With a comprehensive approach to implementation, this historic Bill can embed children’s rights across our public services, change how we view and realise rights in Scotland, and raise the status of all children in Scotland, including those in need of care and protection.
