Rights are a list of promises to children and young people to keep them safe. They are used to make sure you are treated fairly and looked after properly.
When something is called a right, it means that nobody can take it away from you. It is yours, and is meant to protect you and help you have a good life.
Rights for children and young people can be called different things, such as children's rights or youth rights. No matter what they're called, however, they are for both children and young people — the same rights protect you no matter which you are.
