What is the Children’s Measurement Framework?
The Children’s Measurement Framework (CMF) is a new set of indicators in Great Britain to monitor and report on the equality and human rights position of children and young people in the constituent countries of England, Scotland and Wales. The CMF has been developed to assist the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), the body given a statutory duty by the Equality Act (2006) to promote equality and protect human rights in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as specific duties to report to Parliament on progress towards equality and human rights using indicators. The EHRC also has responsibilities as a ‘National Human Rights Institution’ (NHRI) to promote international human rights norms, such as the standards codified in the UN Convention on Rights of the Child.
