Independent Children’s Rights Impact Assessment on the Response to Covid-19 in Scotland

July 2020. This independent Children’s Rights Impact Assessment is a thorough analysis of how emergency laws and policies around the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the human rights of children and young people in Scotland.

Undertaken by the Observatory of Children’s Human Rights Scotland, it is the biggest Children’s Rights Impact Assessment in the world that’s been done on laws and policies passed in response to COVID-19.

Our super listener postcard. It reads "Are you a Super Listener?" and has an image of a red-headed woman with a coffee cup on it, with words indicating the qualities she has. These are: "kind," "knows what they are doing," "remains calm under pressure," "uses hands to communicate," "casual clothes," "believes children," "caring and friendly," "eyes to see the problems," "mouth to communicate," "knows about children's rights," "respectful," "non-judgemental," "will talk to grown-ups for you," "can make you laugh," and "do what they promised."
