Previous OutRight Campaigns

Resource Archive

Thank you for visiting this page!

Over the years children and young people taking part in OutRight have learned about and spoken up on issues including:

  • Mental health and wellbeing
  • The rights of young refugees
  • Air pollution
  • The 30th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
  • Climate Change

We’ve been getting some enquiries for the previous resource packs, so here they are!

If you’ve ended up on this page by accident and wanted to sign up for the current campaign, you can do so here.

Please read the resources carefully and remember they were created several years ago so some of the data, hyperlinks and suggested advocacy actions won’t be up to date.

If you have any issues viewing the resources, or have any questions at all, please email  [email protected]  and we will be happy to help.

For more information about youth engagement activities at the UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK), visit our youth voice pages.

Mental Health and Wellbeing (2021/22)

In 2021-22, OutRight focussed on why their mental health is important, and how it links to the UNCRC. Children and young people produced Mental Health and Wellbeing Declarations, thinking about the services they can access, and would like to have available, to support their mental health.

Support Workshops for Facilitators

We held our first Support Workshop on 15 September 2021: we really enjoyed answering your questions and hearing your ideas. You can find the notes from the workshop here.

The second Support Workshop was on 20 October 2021. Again, we had some interesting and helpful questions about the campaign. You can find the notes from the workshop here.

These notes are useful for anyone leading OutRight with the children and young people they work with!

World Children's Day event

We held a webinar for children and young people taking part in the OutRight campaign, on 19 November 2021. We loved seeing so many settings join from all over the UK and really hope you enjoyed the event. We will be sharing notes from the event here.

Dr. Polly Walker, UNICEF UK Programme Information Specialist – Child Health, told us about her Psychological First Aid tool during the World Children’s Day event – you can find this great resource here.

Climate Change (2020/21)

In 2020/21 OutRight focussed on the impact of climate change and its effects on children’s rights. Children and young people called on decision makers to put children and their rights at the heart of discussions in the lead-up to the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, November 2021.
