Together has affiliated itself with a number of issue-based networks, either with a view to bringing information from the network to disseminate to Together members, or to provide the network with a specific children's rights focus that it would otherwise lack. At present, these networks include:
Rights of the Child UK (ROCK) is a coalition calling on the Government to make the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child part of UK law. It is made up of major charities, lawyers and children's rights activists. Together has been involved in raising awareness of the Children's Rights Bill, which was presented to the House of Lords in November 2009. As part of our role with ROCK, we have produced a briefing paper on the Children's Rights Bill for Together members and are exploring how this work could be further developed in Scotland.
