I believe that the Bristol Children’s Charter is a brilliant piece of work. It levels the playing field in an ever-diversifying and hyper-competitive world. Not only does it do that, but it also guarantees the basic Right of the Child as stipulated by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. In accomplishing these two goals, the Children’s Charter allows for children and young people in Bristol to all enjoy the richness and vibrancy of the city unhindered.
The pledges stipulated in this charter are things that should be basic necessities but unfortunately aren’t, and the mere creation of this charter shows strides that have been taken by Bristol to better the lives of children citywide. The rights of the child are paramount, and this charter shows that Bristol as a city has the needs of its young people at the forefront of its plans moving forward, highlighting how great a city Bristol truly is.
