Formal extension of CRC to Guernsey and Alderney – Convention on the Rights of the Child.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) has now been formally extended to Guernsey and Alderney.
The convention is the most widely ratified piece of international human rights legislation in history.
Extending the Convention to Guernsey and Alderney has been a priority action for the States since 2005, with the Children and Young People’s Plan stating signing up to the UNCRC as one of its overarching actions in the 2016-2022 plan. The CYPP also saw all Guernsey and Alderney schools achieve the Rights Respecting Schools Awards through Unicef
