As part of World Children’s Day and the 30th Anniversary of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), we are showcasing the work we do to respect and support children’s rights.

We are supporting the Children’s Parliament’s ‘Unfearties’ campaign to showcase people who are already courageous in discussing children’s issues, are making a difference in children’s lives and who are willing to speak up for children.

We will be celebrating #worldchildrensday on our Facebook page and Twitter feed over the next few days.

Remember, if you have a concern about a child visit our website or call 01896 662787 during office hours and 01896 752111 out of hours. If you consider a child or young person is in immediate danger, call the Police on 999 without delay.

Tracey Logan, Chief Executive

“We would like to celebrate the work that takes place across the Borders to support, protect, and speak up for children and young people. 

“From our early years, education, social work and community learning teams to our work with Community Planning partners, third sector and volunteers – we all continue to work together in partnership to keep children safe and uphold their rights. 

“We also want to remind people of the many things they can do to ensure they also become an ‘unfeartie’ and help them reach their full potential.

“We want to promote how we all play a key role in standing up for the rights of children and showcase how children in the Borders are playing their part in this too.”
