Tower Hamlets Mayor Charter of Child Rights

Tower Hamlets Council became the first organisation to sign the Charter of Child Rights on the 11th March 2014.

Working in combination with Tower Hamlets Council, Tower Hamlets Youth and Community Services, The Film Office production services and our approved HD film makers - Itch Media - we have collaboratively designed, filmed and produced the "Tower Hamlets Mayor Charter of Child Rights" DVD, to clearly outline the borough's commitment to its youth generation.

Its launch represents a major milestone in the council's new ground-breaking partnership with UNICEF UK, the world's leading children's organisation.

Local children and young people decided which 10 articles in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child were most relevant to them.

These have been used to produce a charter, which organisations that work with children and young people in Tower Hamlets will sign up to.

Tower Hamlets Film Office is the only film office in London where you can facilitate the development of your films, source locations and receive professional advice on where to store your footage.

"Tower Hamlets Council is delighted to be working with UNICEF UK on this vital project.

"We want Tower Hamlets to be widely known as a child-friendly borough. There is a lot of work to do but, thanks to the young people involved, this charter is a great step forward."


UNICEF UK Director of Programmes Teresa Bergin
"We are pleased to be working with Tower Hamlets as part of UNICEF UK's Child Rights Partners programme and it is great to see the council putting this ground-breaking initiative into action.

"We believe that placing children's rights at the heart of local government will transform services for the better and ensure all children have the same opportunity to flourish. This charter is a stepping-stone towards securing this ambitious goal for the children of Tower Hamlets."
