Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014

The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act became law in March 2014.

During the Bill process we successfully lobbied for a range of measures and amendments to be included in the legislation to better reflect the rights and needs of vulnerable children and young people across Scotland.

We are currently engaging with the Scottish Government about the development and implementation of guidance and secondary legislation, which sets out how the Act will work in practice.
