On this page below we have added further information and resources about The Right Way that you might find useful.

Children’s rights lectures/lesson plans

We’ve made three lectures/lesson plans aimed at university and college students.

They introduce children’s rights, and explain a bit more about the work of our office.

They also show students how they can use children’s rights to help them in their future work.

The Right Way: A Future Fit for Children

A toolkit designed to help Public Service Boards, and individual organisations who sit on them, review and improve the services they provide for children and young people.

Children’s Rights Impact Assessment (CRIA)

Welsh Government use Children Right’s Impact Assessments (CRIA) to evidence how they have had regard to children’s rights in their decision making.  Although not all public bodies are required to use CRIA, they can be a useful tool to prompt decision makers to stop and think about the implications of their plans and how to ensure they have the most positive impact possible on children and young people.  In fact, some local authority staff asked us for a template CRIA document that they could use, so we have responded by producing this document that is free to use for anyone working in any type of organisation.

The document is designed to prompt your thinking on each of the five key principles of our Children’s Rights Approach and we’ve left space for you to note down your thinking but it does not have to be completed in full.
