Coram’s Child Law Advice Service has today (9 January 2017) launched a new website which aims to help children and young people to find out about their rights.

LawStuff (www.lawstuff.org.uk), funded by The Queen’s Trust, provides information about children’s rights in the following areas:

  • Online safety
  • Police and Law
  • Children’s Services
  • Education
  • Not from the UK
  • Home and Family
  • At what age can I
  • Abuse and bullying
  • Sex health and drugs
  • My rights

LawStuff.org has been designed to enable visitors to find out their legal rights in a way which is easy to navigate and understand. It will be updated regularly to ensure that all information reflects any changes to the law affecting children’s rights. 

The website also hosts the popular publication At what age can I? Here, young people can find out what activities they can do at certain ages such as, 'when can I learn to drive?', 'when can I babysit?' and 'when can I leave home?' The website will be updated regularly and information will be added to ensure that any changes to the law relating to children’s rights are addressed.

Young people who have specific enquiries which are not covered on the LawStuff site can go to www.childlawadvice.org.uk to find relevant contact details.

Gemma Smith Manager of the Child Law Advice Service (CLAS) said: 'it is extremely important that children and young people know that they have rights which are respected and protected in law. Knowing that they have rights can boost a child or young person’s confidence. It lets them know that they are valued whilst also helping them to respect the rights of others.'
