OutRight is a campaign that empowers children and young people to realise their own rights, and to speak out in support of the rights of all children.
OutRight celebrates World Children’s Day and takes place on 20 November. In 2017, OutRight focuses on the rights of refugee children, in particular their right to be reunited with their family in the UK. This year’s campaign is a continuation of the OutRight 2016 campaign which focused on the rights of refugee children. Your support is needed now more than ever to help ensure these children are reunited with their family in the UK.
Can our school join in?
Yes! Any school in the UK can take part. All you need to do is register or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We provide you with free supporting resources to help you facilitate the OutRight campaign at school. These resources are available from the end of September and will be emailed to registered schools.
When does OutRight take place?
OutRight takes place in the lead-up to World Children’s Day, starting at the end of September and culminating with a day of celebration on 20 November.
Last year, actor, presenter and Unicef supporter Cel Spellman visited children at a Rights Respecting primary school in London who took part in OutRight. “I am so inspired by young people who are being the change they want to see in the world and speaking out about children’s rights,” he said.
