Neath Port Talbot Children's Rights Unit

About us

Neath Port Talbot Children’s Rights Unit (CRU) is a project set up to ensure that children and young people’s rights are respected and protected. The unit aims to make the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), a reality for children, young people and their families living in Neath Port Talbot.

The UNCRC is an agreement between countries which sets out the basic rights all children should have. The project provides opportunities and support for children and young people up to the age of 25 to develop the confidence and skills to understand and exercise their rights, thus becoming active citizens in their societies. The Unit also works to raise awareness and advance education of children’s rights in all areas of society.
