During 2021 and 2022, the Ombudsman for Children’s Office and its Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) produced the Irish Children’s Report to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. This forms part of the UN Committee’s examination of the status of and progress on children’s rights in Ireland.
The report raises and highlights the voices of the 5,515 children who took part in a national online survey and the 200 children who participated in in-depth focus group discussions. We submitted this report, Pieces of Us, to the UN Committee in August 2022. In September 2022, the YAP travelled to Geneva to present and discuss the report with members of the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
