The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child has published its verdict on the UK’s child rights record. In its Concluding Observations the UN Committee raised concern across a large number of areas. These include inadequate services for children’s mental health needs; the treatment of children in trouble with the law and children seeking asylum; the high numbers of homeless families with children who stay for long periods in bed and breakfast accommodation; high levels of air pollution in our cities; and the frequent changes of social workers and placements for children in care.
