Your Rights

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (which Ireland signed up to in 1992) provides many rights to all children and young people. It declares:

  • To be protected and live free violence, abuse or harm.
  • To be brought up by your parents in a family, unless it is not in your interests.
  • To express your views and to have them taken into account in matters affecting you.
  • To have decision affecting you made in your best interest.
  • To be treated with dignity and respect.
  • To be free from discrimination.
