Bristol City Council

In August 2018, Bristol City Council along with key partners from across Bristol launched the Bristol Children’s Charter. This charter, which is the first of its kind in the UK is based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Since the launch the Charter has become the guiding principle for the council and city partners around spatial and urban planning, has been a key support document for central government funding, and has increased public engagement. There are over 40 organisations signed up across the city.
