The Rights of a Child

Wednesday 6th July / presented by Tanya Bunter

A new report has revealed one in six children in Australia live below the poverty line, while 70,000 receive support from specialist homelessness services, despite two decades of consecutive economic growth.

The Australian Child Rights Progress Report has revealed Australia has made significant progress in protecting child rights in Australia.

However, it also identifies a number of young people, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children from rural areas and children from migrant backgrounds, are more likely to experience discrimination, social exclusion and disadvantage.

UNICEF Australia Chief Executive Officer Adrian Graham joined Tanya Bunter to discuss the report.
