3 Children's Parliament is not about advocating on children's behalf, we believe children can advocate effectively for themselves if the right environment is created and support is in place. This is an initiative rich in learning for adults if they listen carefully. Our work is based on children having fun and engaging in projects and investigations in and across our themes which reflect the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. childrensparliament.org.uk

4 Do the Right Thing is a progress report on our response to the 2008 concluding observations from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. The report sets out the progress we have made since the publication of our original children's rights action plan "Do the Right Thing" in As well as setting out progress to date, the report also describes the range of additional activity that Scottish Ministers are committed to delivering over the life of this parliament in order to progress the rights agenda.

7 Together is an alliance of Scottish children's charities that works to improve the awareness, understanding and implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We do this by: promoting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child; helping children's organisations to integrate the UNCRC into their work; monitoring and reporting on the progress made at a Scottish and UK level.

8 This report provides a non-government perspective on the extent to which children in Scotland are able to enjoy their rights enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The report was compiled and produced by Together following wide consultation with children's organisations across Scotland. The consultation involved gathering views and opinions from over 100 professionals working with and for children through seminars held in Dundee, Dumfries and Glasgow.

14 This paper describes in detail the linkages between the Articles of UNCRC and the key elements of the Scottish Governments Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC) approach. Fundamentally, the approach promotes practitioners: to consider each child as an individual with their own needs, risks and rights to engage and involve the child as far as practical in discussions and decisions which affect his or her future to seek out and consider the voice of the child to plan and review activity to improve outcomes, based on well-being.
