UN Convention

In 1989, the world's leaders officially recognised the human rights of all children and young people under 18 by signing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. 

The Convention says that every child has:

·         The right to a childhood (including protection from harm)

·         The right to be educated (including all girls and boys completing primary school)

·         The right to be healthy (including having clean water, nutritious food and medical care)

·         The right to be treated fairly (including changing laws and practices that are unfair on children)

·         The right to be heard (including considering children's views)

 It's the most complete statement of children’s rights ever produced and is the most widely-ratified international human rights treaty in history.
