November children’s rights month 2017


We want Cheshire East to be a great place to be young. A place that respects and champions the rights of all children and young people, encouraging them to express their views and be actively involved in decisions that affect their lives.

So we have dedicated the whole month of November to raising awareness of children’s rights and making it clear to children and young people that we value their opinions and rights.

November Children’s Rights Month is an initiative of the Cheshire East Participation Network, a partnership of all agencies and services who work with children and young people.

NCRM is for everyone and you can celebrate and raise awareness of children’s rights in a variety of different ways. This year’s theme centres around the Diversity of Children’s Rights, concentrating on Equality and Diversity for young people. Throughout the month we will be hosting a range of activities and campaigns so check out our downloadable resources below.

Plan – if you are planning something for NCRM then let us know. If you want to do something but aren’t sure, then let us know and a member of the Cheshire East Participation Network will help you.

Do – whatever you do, don’t forget to take lots of photos (with consent), and tweet us at @cheshireeast.

Review – to make sure we capture the full impact of NCRM , upload these photos, tell us all about your event and how many people took part and tweet us with the hashtag #NCRM
