Overview

Falkirk Children’s Rights is an independent service for any child or young person up to the age of 18 and care experienced young people up to the age of 26.

The service empowers children and young people to participate in decisions that affect your life. We promote, protect and uphold your rights ensuring your voice is heard and at the heart of decisions that impact on you.

How often you speak with us is your choice, but we will always be available to support you when you need it.

If you have any questions about your rights or need some help to speak about any concerns you are having, we can help.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) ensures that children grow up healthy and safe, and that their views are taken into consideration in decisions that affect them.

If you are unsure if we can help, please get in touch. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your rights. If for any reason we are unable to provide direct support, we will always try our best to suggest other services or organisations that may be able to help.

If you would like to refer yourself to our service for support, or would like to refer on someone else’s behalf with their permission, please get in touch.
