The Human Rights Act is a major landmark in the British legal system. It will have a profound effect on services for children.

But how can you be sure to use the act in the best interests of children and young people?

This book is an accessible and practical introduction to the act. It sets out the main articles and describes how they can be used to benefit children and young people.

It highlights the issues that surround each article, and provides case studies and checklists. It also provides relevant links with other legislation and conventions, such as the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

If your work involves children and young people and children's rights form part of your mandate, then this is essential reading. It will be of particular interest to staff in social services, education, health and voluntary organisations.
