UN Committee on the Rights of the Child Survey

UN Committee on the Rights of the Child Survey

Do you work with Children & Young People – Help Children’s Law Centre by facilitating completion of this important Survey.

Children’s Law Centre are in the next phase of the reporting process in which the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child examines the UK Government, NI Executive and other devolved administrations on their compliance with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child [UNCRC].  We hope that you will work with us to gather information from children and young people across Northern Ireland using an online survey which is available on our website from 14 March until 14 April 2022.



To support children and young people in completing the survey, you may wish to download the ‘Guidance’ we have developed to help inform lesson plans or sessions. This includes background information about the reporting process and an overview of the survey. You can also download some Activities and a Template for recording issues raised by children and young people during discussion, should you wish to utilise this.


The survey responses will be analysed and combined with other information to produce a Children and Young People’s Report over the summer. If you would like to receive a copy of the final Report, please email Sinead McSorley [Youth Participation and Advocacy Worker]: sineadmcsorley@childrenslawcentre.org


The Children’s Law Centre has been privileged to work in partnership with many organisations in compiling previous reports to the UN Committee – presenting detailed analysis on implementation of children’s rights here which the Committee has drawn on to develop recommendations used by many of us in our policy, practice and lobbying activities.

We hope that you will encourage the children and young people with whom you work to participate in this process and look forward to receiving survey responses from them
