This year marks the 30th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, a landmark agreement by governments around the world on the rights of children. As Children’s Commissioners it is central to our mission to make sure that those rights are made a reality for all children.

The United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child last reviewed the UK’s progress in 2016, and will do so again in 2021. We are assessing how UK Government and devolved administrations have progressed towards giving every child the opportunities and protections enshrined in the UNCRC since then.
