The Children’s Rights Alliance for England (CRAE) promotes the human rights of children. It does so by: lobbying those who hold power; undertaking strategic litigation; carrying out research; empowering and mobilising others, including children, to take action; and providing legal information and raising awareness in relation to children’s rights.
CRAE is the leading organisation working to promote children’s rights in England. We seek both the structures and mechanisms which will embed children’s rights in our legal system and reform of specific areas or law, policy and practice which violate children’s rights. This aspect of our work focuses on children who are particularly vulnerable to human rights abuses, such as children in custody.
