We’re available for advice on children’s human rights on email at inbox@cypcs.org.uk and on freephone at 0800 019 1179.

We're experiencing a high number of enquiries at the moment so there may be some delay in our response, but we will reply as soon as we can.

What is the Commissioner’s power of investigation?


The Commissioner has the legal power to investigate in some cases where he thinks rights promises to children and young people aren’t being kept in Scotland. It’s a way that our office can hold people in power to account and demand they make changes when they’re failing to follow the law around children’s human rights.
