A major milestone was reached in Scotland yesterday! The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (Incorporation) (Scotland) Act 2024 has come into force, marking a significant step forward towards better protecting, promoting, and respecting the rights of children across Scotland.  At The Donaldson Trust, we welcome this development and recognise the crucial role this legislation can, and should, play in ensuring that all children are valued and supported.  We're particularly mindful that neurodivergent individuals often face much poorer outcomes than their peers – and that their human rights are more likely to be at-risk.  This legislation is part of a series of welcome initiatives by The Scottish Government, including the proposed β€˜LDAN’ Bill, aimed at supporting (amongst others) neurodivergent people; however, we know that there is still much work to be done.  We believe in a future where every individual can thrive and reach their full potential. We'll continue to work towards this goal by providing the necessary resources, support, and opportunities to make it a reality.  #ChildrensRights #UNCRCScotlandAct
