Useful links and resources

We’ve pulled together a list of useful links to websites and resources on rights and the UNCRC.

UNCRC Symbols Resource

What is it?

This resource is designed to be used as a tool to communicate children’s rights under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) using symbols and simplified text.

It was created jointly by the Children’s Commissioner’s in England, Scotland and Wales and children and young people from those countries.

The resource is for use by adults working with children in a wide range of settings. Adults who might find it useful include:

  • parents and carers,
  • educators,
  • support workers,
  • youth workers, and
  • practitioners.


Please contact the office if you would like to receive a hard copy pack of these resources.

Who is it for?

This resource is for use with children and young people who are non-verbal, have speech and language difficulties, additional support needs, or very young children.

However, the resource is flexible, and can be used in many ways to engage with a variety of children and young people about the UNCRC.

How do I get it?

The resources are available to download below.
