Know your rights

In the UK, you are lucky enough to have all sorts of rights under the law. The precise detail can be complicated, and often different laws apply to different parts of the UK.

These pages give you an overview so that you have an idea of the range; but they are not intended to be an exhaustive and detailed guide; for more detail, check out the excellent Citizens Advice website. Citizens Advice is a long-established charity designed to help people solve their problems. You will find up-to-date advice on young people’s rights in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Links to specific subjects and pages are included on the relevant pages.
