About Article 39

  1. Article 39 fights for the rights of children living in state and privately-run institutions in England. A registered charity, we take our name from Article 39 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which grants every child who has experienced abuse or suffered other violations of their rights to recover in environments where their health, self-respect and dignity are nurtured. Our work runs across four complementary areas: legal education; practice development (our national network of independent advocates has nearly 300 members); policy advocacy, research and strategic litigation; and awareness-raising of the rights, views and interests of children.
  2. Article 39’s employees are all home-working in different parts of England. We have good online systems of communication and information-sharing, which the successful candidate will have access to as an equal member of our team. We are a small staff team which works flexibly, including to support parenting responsibilities. It may also be possible for you to work from the Bhatt Murphy office during your days with Article 39 (tbc).
