Description:
The Ombudsman for Children’s Office (OCO) is now one of thirty seven dedicated human rights institutions across forty three Council of Europe member states. It has a demonstrable strong domestic and international reputation. The establishment of the Ombudsman for Children’s Office represented a strong political response to the recommendation made by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child in 1998. The 2002 Act requires the Ombudsman for Children to promote awareness among members of the public of matters relating to the rights and welfare of children and makes express reference to the principles and provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Advancing the realisation of children’s rights is about putting in place the necessary conditions for children to live with dignity and respect. Through our work we see the obstacles that children and families face in trying to achieve this, both in the course of investigating complaints brought to the Office and in direct work with children and young people. By highlighting these practical difficulties, the OCO aims to ensure that decision-makers and society more generally are aware of problems that might otherwise remain unnoticed and unaddressed.
