How does the championing of children’s rights contribute to child-centred practice in social work? This chapter considers the rise of children’s rights awareness in Britain and the West and its impact globally. It examines the laws and policies that have been drawn up to support the development of children’s rights and looks at children’s views about their rights. It also considers the impact of children’s rights on professional practice, in particular on social work practice. Included in the discussion is the role and rise of advocacy, although the practice of advocacy and working with advocates will be featured in a following chapter.
