Children's Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessment

Scottish Sports Futures are committed to ensuring that children’s rights are upheld and are wholly in support of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

CRWIA is an assessment process where you can identify, research, analyse, and record any anticipated impact of a proposed project on the human rights and wellbeing of children and young people.

Ministers committed to CRWIAs as a means of delivering their children’s rights duties under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 which embeds UNCRC rights in Scottish legislation.

The CRWIA is relevant to Scottish Sports Futures as we deliver a wide range of direct support for children and young people.

For further information please see CRWIA – training tool and Children’s rights legislation in Scotland
