Childrens Rights

Everyone has rights, but when you are a child or young person it can sometimes feel as though you have none.

On the 16 December 1991, the United Kingdom adopted the
United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. This means that legally children and young people must be treated fairly.

Birmingham City Council applies these rights in its work with children, young people and families. The convention isn't just for children and young people in this country. The law says that children everywhere must be treated fairly regardless of which country they live in or whether they are rich or poor.

For more information about the application of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child,
visit the DirectGov web site or telephone the Children's Rights Officer on 0121 303 7217 or 0121 303 7224.
