Your Rights, Our Plan

Find out more and download the resource pack to help support children and young people to get involved in Your Rights Our Plan.

Children & Young People Commissioner Scotland

Children and Young People’s Commissioner Nicola Killean hosted two special online assemblies recently and launched a new resource called Your Rights, Our Plan to help children answer six questions about future work.

More than 7,000 children and young people from all over Scotland joined the Commissioner and e-Sgoil – an online teaching and learning platform – to share their views and discover rights. 

The Children and Young People’s Commissioner must plan what big issues will  be the focus over the next four years to promote and protect children’s rights – and this plan must have children’s ideas, opinions, and experiences at the heart of it. 

Here’s how to get involved… 

Groups of children and young people – for example, a class, youth group, sports club, Scouts, or Guides – can fill in the survey’s six questions with an adult.  

There’s a resource pack called ‘Your Rights, Our Plan’ to help adults support groups of children or young people to think about, discuss and answer six questions about what issues are most important. It contains videos, Powerpoints, and activities to help adults support discussions. It has printable follow on creative tasks to spark ideas and further chat about children’s rights.

The deadline for responses is Monday 29th January.
