kidscape "What's Up, Croc?" Children and young people are often denied their rights. Sometimes we don't know what our rights are and what to do if they are violated. This website is about the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CROC). CROC is a United Nations (UN) declaration that Australia signed up to in December 1990. It represents a set of rights that nearly every government in the world has agreed that all children are entitled to. If you are a child or young person we want to know what you think. If you work with children in the youth sector this website has something for you as well.

For more information, visit our website or you can have a look at our Consultation Paper and accompanying Background Briefing.
