Strategic Plan 2024 - 2032

Together (Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights) is delighted to launch our new Strategic Plan for 2024 – 2032!

Our strategic plan is a declaration of our commitment and a plan for action. Our three strategic priorities reflect a holistic approach to achieving our vision, focusing on proactive measures, responsive actions, and building the strength of the children’s rights community to ensure the rights of every baby, child and young person in Scotland.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported Together over the past 25 years and got us to this stage. With a ‘to do’ list from the UN Committee and the power of the UNCRC (Incorporation) (Scotland) Act 2024, Together commits to work tirelessly to ensure that rights are not only recognised in law but become a lived reality for all babies, children and young people in Scotland - that Scotland becomes a place where all babies, children and young people can grow up in an atmosphere of happiness, love and understanding.

OUT NOW - our child-friendly version of the Human Rights Bill Consultation Analysis

On Thursday the 21st of March 2024, we published our child-friendly version of Scottish Governments Consultation Analysis Report.  This report is the fourth in the series and shares what the Scottish Government asked, how people answered and what children and young people told us during our Investigations.

The Rights Detectives are a group of children and young people aged 12-17 who are passionate about defending human rights.  For the last 21 months, they have been receiving missions from  Scottish Government and carrying out investigations with children and young people across Scotland to help shape a new Human Rights Bill for Scotland!

Impact of in-work poverty on children’s human rights

Poverty remains a significant barrier to children's access to their rights. It is now more common to be in working poverty in Scotland than it is to be in poverty and out-of-work – in fact, 170,000 children living in relative poverty live in households where at least one person works. The most recent figures show relative child poverty is on the rise, with one in four Scottish children living in poverty.
