Our Work

CRAE protects the human rights of children by lobbying government and others who hold power, by bringing or supporting test cases and by using regional and international human rights mechanisms. We provide legal information, raise awareness of children’s human rights, and undertake research about children’s access to their rights. We mobilise others, including children and young people, to take action to promote and protect children's human rights. Each year we publish a review of the state of children's rights in England. 

Currently, the focus of our work is on:

  • ensuring that children’s rights are protected by domestic law;
  • monitoring compliance with children’s rights;
  • promoting the rights of children in custody; and
  • raising awareness of children’s rights through training.

The links at the left of the screen will provide you with more information in relation to each of these areas of work.
