Childrens Rights

How the UK is doing

The UN last examined how well the UK is implementing the treaty in May 2016 and published its recommendations in June 2016. These included:

  • enhancing the status of the CRC and incorporating the treaty into UK domestic law
  • re-establishing targets for the reduction of child poverty, and assessing the cumulative impact of social security reforms on children
  • collecting comprehensive data on children’s mental health and increasing investment in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS)
  • reducing the impact of social background or disabilities on children’s educational achievement
  • ensuring meaningful sexual and reproductive health education is part of the mandatory school curriculum
  • strengthening protections of the rights of asylum-seeking, refugee and migrant children
  • raising the minimum age of criminal responsibility
  • abolishing the use of restraint against children for disciplinary purposes
