THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar focuses 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 the ongoing Independent Review into Scotland’s care system, following the completion of its initial discovery phase.
Further sessions will look at next steps for reforming child protection in Scotland as The Scottish Government implements its Child Protection Improvement Programme - including consulting on revising the criminal offences of abuse and neglect of children - and as a Members Bill on giving children equal protection to adults from assault makes its way through The Scottish Parliament.
Delegates will also discuss Named Person legislation in relation to uncertainty surrounding its future, following the decision of MSPs to delay planned changes.
