Children and Young People’s Annual Report 2019/20

Every year, we create a Report for the Scottish Parliament to tell the people of Scotland what we’ve done.

And every year we write a version for children and young people too.

This is our report for the year between April 2019 and March 2020, which ended around the same time lockdown began.

In the middle of the pandemic, that can seem like a long time ago— but our work for you then still matters now.

It was a year where we fought a lot for your rights, and in this report we’ll tell you about some of the most important things we did.

Seven word stories

With just seven words, we celebrate rights


In November 2019, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) turned 30 years old. To celebrate, we asked people of all ages to send us stories about rights told in just seven words.

We got over a thousand responses from all over Scotland, from children, young people and adults. You’ll find some of the children and young people’s stories written throughout this report.
