Do you know what your rights are and what you are allowed and aren't allowed to do at your age? On this site, you'll find out about your rights in various areas of your life.

It's not easy being young and getting people to take you seriously.

This site shows you what your rights are, what you are entitled to and how you should be treated. It also has a section about at what age you are legally allowed to do things.

On this website, you will find information on the following issues:

  • Your rights
  • At what age can I?
  • Legal advice
  • Contact details of the Centre for Child Law

The Centre established a Children’s Litigation Project in August 2003 (with a grant from the Open Society Foundation) in order to undertake impact litigation work in the children’s rights sector. Advocate Ann Skelton is the project co-ordinator, and the project is currently dealing with a number of cases.

You've got to learn to stand up for yourself and make sure you are treated fairly. So why not start now?

  • Protection from Abuse
  • Breaking the law
  • Know Your Rights

If you don't find the answers to your questions here, feel free to contact the Centre for Child Law.

Your details will not be shared with anyone outside of the Centre, unless we feel you are in danger or need urgent help. In that case, we will contact you first.
