Clan Childlaw is Scotland’s law centre for children and young people. We exist to protect and strengthen children’s rights and improve their lives. 

We are lawyers for children and young people.

All our lawyers regularly represent children and young people in court, at Children’s Hearings, and in important meetings. We protect the rights of the children we work with and make sure their voices are heard.

We help other people to stand up for children’s rights.

We offer training, resources, and a free helpline to make the law easier to navigate for people who support children and young people.

We work to change the law.

We work with children and young people every day, so we can see when the law is not working properly to protect children’s rights. We ask decision makers and lawmakers to change the law and the way the law is used to make sure that children and young people’s rights are a reality in Scotland.
