CRAE will be working throughout the 2010/11 Parliamentary session to highlight significant threats and opportunities for children’s human rights, and to support Parliamentarians to strengthen legal protection for children’s human rights as set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and other human rights instruments
Read CRAE's press release on the announcement of a Commission to investigate a British Bill of Rights.
The Children’s Rights Alliance for England is delighted that one of the first announcements of the new coalition Government is the end of detention of children for immigration purposes. Recent figures show that 830 children entered detention solely under Immigration Act powers between April and December 2009.
As the country waits to hear the final outcome of the General Election, the Children’s Rights Alliance for England is selecting its shortlist of urgent children’s rights matters to bring to the attention of Government Ministers.
Today CRAE launches its 2010 You’ve got the Right programme, aimed at empowering children and young people under 18 in England to take action to uphold their rights. You've got the Right started in 2008 with the launch of the first ever national telephone and email advice service for children and young people in England on human rights and equality law, which has so far dealt with hundreds of enquiries. This year, we are expanding the programme to include our popular children's rights training (NEW and improved!) and the development of a NEW national network of lawyers for children's rights.< Previous 1234567891011121314151617181920212223242526 Next >
