Strategic plan

Our Strategic Plan for 2020-2024 sets out the goals of the Commissioner’s office over the next four years, as we work towards a Scotland where all children and young people are able to enjoy their human rights.


When we say children and young people should enjoy their rights, that doesn’t just mean they should take pleasure from them. In this context someone enjoys their rights when they fully possess and benefit from them— so they’re actually put into practice in their lives.
