New National Taskforce to lead on human rights in Scotland
The Scottish Government has announced a new National Taskforce to lead on human rights in Scotland.
Together warmly welcomes the launch of Scottish Government's consultation on the incorporation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into Scots law. Incorporation has the potential to transform the experience of children, young people and their families across Scotland!
Following the First Minister's commitment to incorporate the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into Scots law, we'll be publishing a series of blogs throughout May, which put the spotlight on why this is the #RightTime for Scotland to incorporate!
Follow the campaign on our blog and across our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
In this 30th anniversary year of the UNCRC, let’s make it happen!

Together (Scottish Alliance for Children's Rights) and the Children and Young People Commissioner Scotland have convened an expert Advisory Group to produce a draft Children's Rights (Scotland) Bill to show how the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) could be incorporated into Scots law. On Universal Children's Day, the Advisory Group presented the draft Bill to the Deputy First Minister and Minister for Children and Young People. Find out more here.
