On the Street

  • Your human rights don’t stop at home or in school – even when you’re out and about, you have rights
  • The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child sets out human rights which can protect you
  • In Wales, the law also protects you as a child.
If you’re out on the street, you need to understand what your rights are and what could happen if things don’t go to plan. If you’re out without your parents or an adult looking after you, there are lots of things you need to be aware of.

On the street because I can't go home

What can I - and can't I - do
Staying out of trouble
Getting around
