Parents and carers

A stylised imge of a love heart.

The UNCRC says that children and young people should grow up in a family environment of happiness, love and understanding. As a parent or carer, you are part of making that happen.

Our resources can help you understand your child’s rights, and help you if you need advice about the human rights of your child.


If you are concerned that a child may be at immediate risk of harm, please contact your local Social Work Department or Police Scotland (dialling 999 in an emergency) as a matter of urgency.

Our office is not able to investigate child protection concerns.
