Covid-19 is the greatest global health, social and economic crisis of our lifetime. It is also a child rights crisis.

Beyond the direct health consequences of the virus itself, the pandemic has attacked the way children access education and services, exacerbated child poverty, food insecurity and deep-rooted inequalities, and exposed and increased the risks facing already vulnerable groups in their homes and communities.

Cities and communities have been at the forefront of the covid-19 response – providing essential services to the most vulnerable, ensuring the flow of information to residents, even providing emergency funding to local groups.

This local response will be made more effective, resilient, and innovative if guided by children’s rights.

The documents below have been drafted by the UNICEF UK Child Friendly Cities & Communities (CFC) programme and are intended to provide a framework for cities and communities to incorporate children’s rights into their response and recovery planning.
