Children’s rights

Our work is grounded in international human rights and children’s rights standards, including the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

As a rights-based organisation, children’s rights are an integral part of Include Youth

Staff are trained in children’s rights to help support, enable and encourage all young people to actively participate in society and influence the issues and decisions that affect their and other young people’s lives.

Promote and protect the rights of children and young people
