Full Description

Clan Childlaw is Scotland’s law centre for children and young people. Since 2008, Clan has been working to protect and strengthen children’s rights and to improve their lives. Clan aims to improve the life chances of children and young people across Scotland by ensuring they have access to the legal advice they need as well as securing the recognition and enforcement of their rights in Scots Law. Clan Childlaw’s team of expert lawyers regularly represent children and young people in court, at Children’s Hearings, and in important meetings. They protect the rights of the children they work with and make sure their voices are heard. As an organisation, Clan is working to #KeepThePromise and play their part in driving positive change for care-experienced children in Scotland.

Clan Childlaw also helps other people to stand up for children’s rights. They offer training, resources, and a free helpline to make the law easier to navigate for people who support children and young people in Scotland. When the law is not working properly to protect children’s rights, Clan Childlaw works to change laws, policies and practices to make sure young people’s rights are a reality in Scotland.
