25 Calls to change children’s lives for the better

Our anniversary campaign brings together diverse voices from across the sector to propose how children can experience greater equality and strengthened human rights. 

We are in a unique and exciting position as the national membership organisation for the children’s sector in Scotland, and our 25 Calls campaign is our roadmap for a future where children rights are protected.

The calls cover four themes:

Strengthening rights and participation

Supporting children, families and communities

Challenging inequalities

Improving education, skills and learning experiences

We have spoken to people who work with children every day, researchers into children’s development, charities who stand up for children’s rights, schools and nurseries, parents and carers, and children and young people themselves to produce our calls. 

Follow #25Calls on social media, join our network and check this page to be kept in the loop as we publish our calls over the coming weeks.
