Scottish Government is seeking views on the revised National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland, which will replace the current National Guidance published in 2014.
The revision has involved consultation and collaboration with a wide range of partners to consider and reflect the range of legislative, policy and practice developments.
They are keen to hear your views on the tone, level of detail and approach in the revised guidance, particularly in relation to the description of new or significant aspects, and whether there are any omissions or issues that have not been adequately addressed.
Consultation responses will be analysed and views will inform the final content of the revised National Guidance, and future developments in child protection improvement work more generally.
The deadline for responses is Sunday 17th January 2021. The final revised National Guidance will be published online in Spring 2021.
To submit your response, or for further information, please visit the Scottish Government consultation hub.
Alternatively, if you would like to discuss your response, please contact the Child Protection team by email: ChildProtectionConsultation@gov.scot
