Rights in Brief: Defining children’s constitutional right to social services*NEW*
PDF Download - This rights brief defines children’s right to social services – a right which is
currently under discussion in relation to the Children’s Act. The new legislation focuses on giving
effect to three constitutional rights: children’s right to social services; their right to family care,
parental care or appropriate alternative care; and the right to be protected from all forms of
neglect and abuse. The rights brief therefore outlines the scope and content of these rights in
order to feed into the deliberations on the new law. The publication is an output of the CI’s
Project 28, which aims to define the scope and content of children’s constitutional rights using
jurisprudence, academic commentary and international law.
