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 dedicate 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 (NCRM) is an initiative of the Cheshire East Participation Network, a partnership of all agencies and services who work with children and young people.

We encourage everyone to celebrate and raise awareness of children’s rights in a variety of different ways. The theme in 2017 centred on Equality and Diversity. Throughout the month we hosted a range of activities and campaigns ranging from ‘Hands Up’ for children’s rights, takeover challenge and the STAR awards.
