The Children's Legal Centre

One of the problems we face as parents of a school refuser is getting the right help and support. Things become more difficult when we begin to face legal threats.

The Children's Legal Centre is a unique, independent national charity concerned with law and policy affecting children and young people.

Their aims and objectives are:

  • To promote and uphold children's rights within the context of UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the European Convention on Human Rights in the UK and internationally.
  • To monitor and develop law, policy and practice concerning children and young people, to inform and influence policy makers and the general public.
  • To improve access to justice through legal advice, information and representation for children, young people and adults working on their behalf.
  • To publish a range of legal guides and information on child law, policy and practice.
  • To carry out research in the field of child law to assist policy reform and the application of law relating to children.
  • To provide technical expertise and training programmes to states, Inter-Governmental Organisations, Non-Governmental Organisations and United Nations agencies.
I have no experience of this organisation, but they might be worth a try. I would welcome any feedback.
