Introduction

The purpose of this guidance is to provide information and resources to support public authorities and other organisations to implement a children’s human rights approach. This may also assist public authorities to meet their current duties under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 and to prepare for their duties under section 6 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation)(Scotland) Bill, which would place a duty on public authorities not to act incompatibly with the ‘UNCRC requirements’ as defined by section 1 of the Bill.
