A remote conference offering parents, children and child welfare professionals a tutorial on young people’s legal rights has been organised by charity, Article 39.

The online seminar, which costs £10 for adults to attend, with concessions available for people under 25 and unemployed students, will share updates on the legal rights of young people and children under legislation including the Children Act, Children’s and Families Act, Care Act, and the Housing Act.

The conference’s Eventbrite page says the day-long session will also show you how to access help and outline the remedies available if a young person’s legal rights are breached. 

The session is going to be chaired by Article 39 Director Carolyne Willow, and will look at topics such as benefits for families, income maximisation, racial discrimination and housing, under the theme of ‘law in the time of Covid’.

There does not appear to be a segment about children’s rights during the child protection process, so we hope Carolyne will allow for questions on this topic, and perhaps even consider launching a separate seminar for this issue.

The online conference takes place tomorrow from 10am – 4.30pm, and if you have any questions you can contact Article 39 on 020 3195 1906 or at info@youthlegal.org.uk.
