Every child and young person has a right to know what their rights are. Part of the Ombudsman for Children’s job is to raise awareness of children’s rights, including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The 28th of September 2017 marked the 25th anniversary of Ireland signing the UNCRC. To learn about our year-long programme to celebrate this anniversary, click here.
