TODAY, Scottish Borders Council marked the 30th anniversary of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child and World Children's Day with a new campaign.

Supporting the Children's Parliament 'Unfearties' campaign, which showcases people who are courageous in talking about children's issues, having a positive impact on children's lives and who speak up for them, SBC has highlighted the work it does to protect and respect children's rights.

Tracey Logan, Chief Executive of SBC explained: “The Council would like to celebrate the work that takes place across the Borders to support, protect, and speak up for children and young people.

“From our early years, education, social work and community learning teams to our work with Community Planning partners, third sector and volunteers – we all continue to work together in partnership to keep children safe and uphold their rights.

“We also want to remind people of the many things they can do to ensure they also become an ‘unfeartie’ and help children reach their full potential.

“We want to promote how we all play a key role in standing up for the rights of children and we also will be celebrating how children in the Borders are playing their part in this too.”

The Council have celebrated World Children's Day on its Facebook and Twitter pages using the hashtag, #unfearties and invite others to join in by using the hashtag on their social media pages.
