Understanding your rights

The Statement of Rights document on this page is for children and young people in care. 

These set out things like what should happen:

  • when you come into care
  • while you're in care 
  • if you move while in care or if you are leaving care soon
  • who is there to support you (your advocate)
  • if something is not right
  • when information is shared about you with other people.
