The Law is Different in Wales
In Wales, the law is often different to the law in England.
This is because the UK government has given power to the Senedd (and to the Scottish Parliament and the Northern Ireland Assembly) to make some of its own laws. The law is especially different in lots of the areas that affect children and young people, including education, health and social care.
It is also different because the Welsh Government recognises the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
Children’s Legal Centre Wales is a small project. We are very sorry but we are not able to offer legal advice to members of the public. We support strategic litigation cases, provide information on the Law as it affects children in Wales and run an education programme. Please explore our website for further information.
