About our policy work

One of the ways the Commissioner’s office protects the rights of children and young people is to comment on proposed policies and legislation that may affect them. We do this at a Scottish level by:

  • giving evidence to the Scottish Parliament around issues that affect children and young people’s human rights,
  • responding to consultations around how new policies or legislation will impact children and young people’s human rights, and
  • writing briefings for MSPs on the rights impact of Bills before the Scottish Parliament.

We also provide evidence at UK, European and International levels.
