Compliance Report on the Children’s Rights Measure


The Children Rights Measure requires the Welsh Government to publish a report on how Welsh Cabinet Secretaries and Ministers have complied with the duty to consider children’s rights in the decisions they take.

Section 1 of the Rights of Children and Young Persons (Wales) Measure 2011 places a duty on all Welsh Cabinet Secretaries and Ministers to consider the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) when making decisions. 

The report shows the progress made in implementing the Measure and provides a way for the Welsh Government to identify areas that might need improvement in the future.
