Here's the link to a blog I've written about why the UK Gov's failure to listen to children during the pandemic is a children's rights issue.

Human rights defender focusing on children's rights, and undergraduate researcher, Amnesty UK Children's Human Rights Network

I am a human rights defender focusing on children's rights. I am the vice chair and empowerment and involvement officer of the Amnesty UK Children's Human Rights Network. The network is a dynamic, and change-making group of activists who campaign with children to make their rights real. My research this summer has focused on understanding how certain linguistic structures are used by organisations, movements, and individual activists to take action on human rights issues.

A really thought provoking piece, thank you Holly. Children are often the forgotten voices  but best placed to talk about their needs. Often in a crisis we fail to listen well - it's so important that everyone feels heard, particularly in times of heightened anxiety.
