Universal Children's Day 2023

Today is Universal Children's Day, otherwise known as ‘World Children's Day.’ It is also UNICEF's day of action to stand up for the rights of children worldwide and on this day 34 years ago the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) was adopted.

Each year Universal Children's Day promotes international togetherness, awareness among children worldwide and improving children’s welfare. This serves as a powerful reminder of the commitment to ensuring that all children are afforded the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential. All children deserve our best and Save The Children consider the top 5 children’s rights to be as follows:-

  1. Every child has the right to grow up healthy.
  2. Every child deserves an education.
  3. Every child deserves protection.
  4. Every child deserves a voice.
  5. Every child has a right to be a world where their rights are realised.

Children and young people are raising their voices on the issues that matter to their generation and asking for adults to create a better future and address issues such as climate change, education, mental health and ending discrimination. The theme for World Children's Day 2023 is ‘for every child, every right!’

Posted on 09th February 2024 in Family Law

The Family Court is under immense pressure. The number of court applications, including issues relating to finances on divorce or separation of an unmarried couple and arrangements for children are rising each year. Cases are taking longer to conclude and very often experiencing delays in listing hearings and, as is happening more frequently, hearings are being moved or even cancelled at short notice due to judicial unavailability.
