RIGHTS HERE, RIGHT NOW’
Youth@CLC, the youth advisory panel at the Children’s Law Centre, are asking 12-17 year olds across Northern Ireland to complete our:
‘RIGHTS HERE, RIGHT NOW’ online survey between 14th March and 14th April.
Focused on implementation of children’s rights in this jurisdiction, the survey will inform a Children and Young People’s Report to be submitted to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in September.
This is a chance for children and young people here to have their voice heard by the UN Committee and tell them how their lives could be improved. We are hoping for as many responses as possible between 14th March and 14th April. A lot has happened since the last survey in 2015 and it is critical that our children and young people have their voice heard where it matters.
Further information will be sent to you later in the month. For now, we hope you could prepare by informing relevant points of contact (i.e. teachers, youth workers, service providers) that the survey will be coming, and where relevant, plan a small amount of time to assist the children and young people you work with in completing it.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Sinead McSorley, Youth Participation and Advocacy Worker by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
