Article of the Week – Article 6, 20 & 25
This week we’re looking at three articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child which are related to families and who cares for and protects children on a day-to-day basis.
These are Article 9 (separation from parents), 20 (children unable to live with their family) and 25 (review of treatment in care). These protect children who can’t be looked after by their parents for a number of reasons.
You can use these activities to support your learners to think about what different families look like, why some children may need different care arrangements and what children need from their carers to thrive and be the best they can be.
Best wishes,The RRSA Team
