We are excited to announce that the Rights of the Child UK Coalition (ROCK) Conference 2024 on progressing children’s rights across the UK and Jersey is scheduled to take place on the 17th September in Edinburgh.

This significant event will bring together key stakeholders from all four UK jurisdictions and Jersey, international experts in children’s rights and keynote speakers from both government and non-government backgrounds to engage in meaningful discussions on how we can ensure children’s rights are protected, respected and fulfilled across the UK.

ROCK is a coalition of voluntary organisations and individuals working together to bring children's rights into UK law.

ROCK’s aims are to:

  • Achieve the active recognition and realisation of children's rights in the UK through the incorporation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) into UK law.
  • Identify and act upon opportunities for the incorporation of the CRC into UK law.
  • Work together to maximise the opportunities to strengthen children's rights that are presented by proposals from the UK and devolved governments.


The ROCK steering group are made of up CRAE, Together (Scottish Alliance for Children’s Rights), Children in Wales, Wales UNCRC Monitoring Group, Children’s Law Centre and UNICEF UK. The current chair is Juliet Harris, Director of Together.


Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more details, including registration information and the full agenda, which will be announced soon.
