YouthLink Scotland takes a rights-based approach to all aspects of our work, including service design and delivery. As part of the delivery of the CashBack for Communities Youth Work Fund, YouthLink Scotland has conducted a Children’s Rights Impact Assessment.  You can read it here (hyperlink).

The National Grants Team has undertaken the Scottish Governments Introducing Child Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessment: a 20-minute training tool and funded organisations are asked to undertake this training as a condition of their award.
