Assessment of Wellbeing

Scottish Ministers must issue guidance on how the eight wellbeing indicators:

  • Safe

  • Healthy

  • Achieving

  • Nurtured

  • Active

  • Respected

  • Responsible

  • Included

These are to be used to assess the wellbeing of a child or young person.

 

This is a consultation on statutory guidance, in line with Section 96(3) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (the Act). 

Draft guidance has been developed in partnership with stakeholders. What are your thoughts and opinions on this?  This consultation is an opportunity to provide feedback on the draft.  The responses will feed into the revision, so that the final, published guidance is informed by consultation responses.

Do you have expertise to feed into this?  Would you like help to do so?

Closes 31st March 2022

The last 20 years has seen some very progressive changes in homelessness across Scotland, with a clear definition, a duty of care, the abolition of priority need and a move to reduce temporary solutions to permanent solutions, naming only a few.

This consultation is joint between the Scottish Government and COSLA, looking at the proposals for new prevention of homelessness duties.

 

How do you think the systems could be improved?  What lessons can we learn from, both in terms of our work so far, as well as what is happening elsewhere?  Do you think you / your organisation have ideas, thoughts and solutions to propose, that may help us eradicate homelessness in Scotland?

If you'd like our help to input to this, please drop us a quick email.

A New Deal for Tenants

The Scottish Government is seeking views regarding tenancies and tenants.  With a specific look at the rented sector strategy; how best to improve accessibility, affordability choices and standards across the whole rented sector in Scotland.  This consultation comes with a lot of possibilities.  At a time where everyone is spending more time in their own homes, it could be more important than ever to input to this.

How do we ensure homes are homes?  What makes a house affordable and not a weight upon the shoulders of those living there?  What strategies need to be in place to provide a home for everyone in the country that meets their needs?

Would you / your organisation have ideas that would help the future of housing in Scotland?  Should you be putting your ideas into this consultation?  If you'd like us to help with this, please get in touch.
