What does CRAE do?
The Children’s Rights Alliance for England (CRAE) is a group of organisations and individuals that work together to get the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child put fully into practice in England.
We try to do this in lots of different ways:
- We report to the United Nations and the Council of Europe on how well the Government is putting children’s rights into practice in England
- We work with the Government and Parliament to encourage them to make laws and policies that are in line with children’s human rights, and try to stop laws and policies that go against children’s rights
- We campaign on different children’s rights issues, including age discrimination against children, and treating children in trouble with the law with respect
- We help children and young people to learn about their rights and to take action on children’s rights nationally and where they live
- We try to make sure that as many people as possible - including the media – know about children’s human rights.
CRAE works with children and young people to take action to make sure children’s human rights are respected and protected in England.
