UN CRC Committee's Concluding Observations 2016

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.
