A Fairer Future: October 2020 to January 2022

Children and young people’s rights (to 2022)


Please note that we updated our strategy for A Fairer Future in July 2022. Read our blog about the changes and the new priorities.

The information on this page refers to our priorities in our original strategy for A Fairer Future.

We believe all children and young people should have their rights respected, no matter how challenging their circumstances.

We recognise some young people do not always get the support or services they need and fund those who work with young people to create fairer systems.

What we want to achieve

Impact goals

Injustice and structural inequality is challenged and changed

Long-term outcomes
  • More children and young people access the education, services, and support to which they are entitled
  • Legislation, policy, and practice better reflect the needs of those most likely to have their rights denied
  • Young people with direct experience of being let down by the system are supported to shape better approaches
