Central Edinburgh

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This timely seminar will focus on The Scottish Government’s current wide-ranging policy reform agenda aimed at improving lives for vulnerable children in Scotland.


Delegates will consider the further action that might be taken to improve the experience of children and young people in care, and will discuss key issues identified by Fiona Duncan’s ongoing Independent Review into Scotland’s care system, which is expected to complete its initial discovery phase imminently.


Further sessions will look at policy priorities for improving child protection in Scotland as The Scottish Government develops its National Child Abuse Prevention Plan, due to be published in March 2018, as well as the future of Named Person legislation.
