At Home

  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child has a lot to say about your right to be at home and to live with your family
  • In Wales, if your family needs help to look after you, they should get it
  • If your parents aren’t looking after you properly, you should be protected.

Home is where you spend a lot of your time. For most children and young people it’s a safe place, but sometimes things don’t go so well. You might not get on with the people you’re living with, or someone might be making you feel unsafe. It doesn’t matter what your background is and where you have come from. If you live in Wales, you have rights to make sure you are properly looked after at home. If you are not being properly looked after at home, or something else has happened which means you can’t live at home, your rights are there to protect you.
