Where we work

We’re partnering with councils across the UK to put children’s rights into practice.

The candidate cities and communities currently working towards international recognition from Unicef:



Some examples of how cities & communities are putting rights into practice

In Aberdeen, pupils from primary and secondary schools took over the council chamber for a day to share their views on how they could be more involved in local decision-making.

In Barnet, police officers are to receive training in children's rights and will be trained by young people in youth engagement after local children raised concerns about not trusting the police.

In Cardiff, thousands of families were able to cycle in the city centre during the city's biggest ever car-free day; held to improve children's right to the best possible health.

In Derry & Strabane, the district council has joined forces with the Western Health and Social Care Trust (on behalf of the Children and Young People's Strategic Partnership - Western Area Outcomes Group) to ensure children and young people have a say in how public services are run across the whole community.

In Liverpool, our newest partner, the council is bringing local partners and children together to decide what needs to change to make the city more child-friendly.

In Newcastle, children and young people have identified their right to feel safe, healthy, and equal and included as the three areas they want the city to prioritise.
