What is the UNCRC?

The United Nation Convention on the Rights of a Child (UNCRC) is what all of the Senedd Yr Ifanc’s work is based on. They particularly focus on Article 12 – Respect for children and young people’s views. Children have the right to give their opinions freely on issues that affect them. Adults should listen and take children seriously.

The Senedd Yr Ifanc Wrecsam is Wrexham’s Youth Parliament. It’s made up of young people aged 11- 25 who represent a group or project. They work on county wide issues that affect young people in Wrexham.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is a human rights treaty which sets out the civil, political, economic, social, health and cultural rights of children.
