Our work at the UNCR includes holding the UK governments(s) to account for breaching children rights through religious discrimination/segregation in education, non-consensual religious surgery, lack of appropriate sex education, and institutional religious child abuse.

UNCRC and clerical child abuse

The UNCRC reviews each country's record every five years, when they have to submit a report. When your country is about to be reviewed, please tell the UN Committee if appropriate that there is no mandatory reporting and that there are time limits on criminal and civil actions, and that you want these to be rectified to help prosecutions and civil actions. You could also refer to any major examples of abuse in the previous five years. This need only be one or two pages, it should not be more than three.
