The Welsh Assembly Government has adopted the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as the basis for all of its policies and programmes for children and young people in Wales. The Assembly Government has translated the UNCRC into seven core aims: Core Aim 1 Every child should have a flying start in life and the best possible basis for their future growth and development. Core Aim 2 Every child and young person should have access to a comprehensive range of education, training and learning opportunities, including the acquisition of essential personal and social skills. Core Aim 3 Every child should enjoy the best possible physical and mental, social and emotional health, including freedom from abuse, victimisation and exploitation. Core Aim 4 All children should have access to play, leisure, sporting and cultural activities. Core Aim 5 All children and young people should be listened to, treated with respect and have their race and cultural identity recognised. Core Aim 6 All children and young people should have a safe home and community which supports physical and emotional wellbeing. Core Aim 7 No child or young person should be disadvantaged by poverty. In 2008, the Assembly Government published the first Children and Young People’s Wellbeing Monitor for Wales1, reporting on a variety of health and wellbeing indicators and research evidence structured around the core aims. The Support Unit for Research Evidence was commissioned to undertake a comprehensive evidence review of relevant research, in order to inform and support development of the 2011 Monitor.
