SNAP Scotland's National Action Plan for Human Rights. This is a road map for activating children's rights. By raising awareness and understanding of rights in health, social care, housing, justice, living standards and safety, we help to focus on the role of children as victims of social and political, as well as economic injustice and discrimination. A rights-based analysis of budget decisions in which we dis-aggregate for the impact on children would help to prevent outcomes like the negative impact of welfare cuts on child poverty. Humanists in Scotland must get behind the work of the Scottish Human Rights Commission in particular to tackle the problem of human rights for children.
