See it, Say it, Change it

The See it, Say it, Change it project is an exciting opportunity for children and young people.

This year the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child will be looking at whether the UK is doing enough to respect, protect and fulfil children’s human rights. CRAE’s See it, Say it, Change It project supports children and young people a chance to tell their side of the story to the Committee, and to campaign for change.

We are currently working with children and young people aged between five and 17 from across England. This includes a steering group of 21 children and young people who are leading the project. CRAE has supported the group to undertake research with children and young people across England about their views and experiences. They submitted their findings to the UN Committee on Wednesday 1 July 2015. You can watch a film about the project and the report below.

In October 2015 the stereing group went to Geneva to present their findings to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in person. You can find out more about their trip by clicking on the Geneva 2015 tab on the left.
