Children and young people's rights
While everyone in Scotland has human rights, children and young people have their own set of special rights too.
These are a set of promises that make sure they're treated fairly and looked after properly.
Children's rights are listed in a document called the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Scotland has a Children and Young People's Commissioner – it's their role to make sure these rights are protected.
Visit the Children and Young People's Commissioner Scotland website for a list of these rights, along with explanations to make each of them easier to understand.
