About Singapore Children's Forum

Started in 2013, Singapore Children's Forum (SCF) is a platform for children and young persons (CYP) in Singapore to participate and to express their views on issues that matter to them.


Anchoring the SCF is Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) — that CYP have a right to participate in matters that affect them and for their opinions to be taken seriously.
