Revised National guidance for child protection in Scotland

The National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland describes the responsibilities and expectations of everyone who works with children, young people and their families in Scotland. It sets out how agencies should work together with children, young people, parents, families and communities to protect children from abuse, neglect and exploitation.

The aim of the consultation is to seek views on the tone, level of detail and approach in the revised guidance, in particular in relation to the description of new or significant aspects, and whether there are any omissions or aspects that have not been adequately addressed.

Closes 15th March 2020

This form of assistance is provided to disabled individuals between the ages of 16 and state pension age to mitigate the additional costs of living with a disability or health condition.

This consultation is about gathering views, ideas and solutions to make the new benefit work as well as possible.  It is clear there are things Scotland can learn from the benefits that have gone before it.  You could really make a difference in putting forward your thoughts and solutions.
