Working alongside the Children’s Rights Unit has strengthened Swansea Bay Health Board to further embed children’s rights into practice. In such a large organisation with limited capacity the unit has supported the development and facilitated the training, together with providing support and leadership to our youth advisory panel. This year has seen the development of an easy-read charter in order that all children can understand what their rights are within health. The Children’s Rights Unit have played a pivotal role in the development of this, working alongside schools within the Swansea Bay area. Without this support we would not be able to achieve all that we have over the last year.
