“It is important that when children and young people take these peaceful and powerful actions, they are not silenced, discouraged or punished.” Bruce Adamson
Bruce Adamson, the Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland, has welcomed the advice to offer the Covid vaccine to children between the age of 12 and 15.
“With more than a quarter of a million children affected, poverty is the most significant human rights issue facing children in Scotland.”
Scotland’s Parliament has voted to enshrine the UNCRC into domestic law after MSPs passed the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Bill, 16th of March 2021.
Bruce Adamson, the Commissioner, works to promote and protect children’s human rights and relies on a Young Advisers Group as one of the key ways to hear directly about the issues that matter.
