Children and Young people

Right of the Month

Many of you might be familiar with our right of the month approach and have seen our calendar of rights as a way for us to share children’s rights with you and your teachers.

We would like to give you some ideas on activities that will help you to learn and explore your rights.  Starting from June 2020, at the beginning of every month we will provide a short video for you and then you will be able to show and share these videos with your teachers. We hope this will inspire you!

The Right of the month for May and June is Article 27 which is the right to a proper house, food and clothing

Four members of our Participation Team have made a video each for different age groups…..

  • Under 7’s
  • 7-11’s
  • 12-18
  • Accessible

If you would like to see these videos or any of our previous videos then visit our Right of the Month Page:

We will provide monthly ideas and welcome any feedback. You can contact by sending us an email
