The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

Monday 2nd August 2021

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is an international treaty which sets out the rights of every child under the age of 18.

‘Every child has rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.


The Boys’ Brigade is committed to upholding children’s rights.  Our vision is for children and young people to live their lives to the full (John 10:10).  As an organisation, we empower children and young people to learn more about their rights and how to use them.

Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously – Article 12

Every child must be free to express their thoughts and opinions and to access all kinds of information, as long as it is within the law – Article 13

Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities – Article 31
