The Child Rights Manifesto is a short, values-based manifesto reflecting the voices of over 3,500 children and young people in Scotland.

It outlines the ways in which children and young people expect decision-makers to act, in order for them to enjoy their rights as set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

The manifesto requests that MSPs:

  • Promote and protect their rights
  • Actively listen and empower them to participate
  • Create respectful communities that celebrate difference
  • Make sure that everyone is included
  • Support them to live full, healthy lives where they can aspire and achieve.

The manifesto does not include specific policy asks; rather, it outlines the key values that children expect MSPs to have when making decisions affecting them.
