The Scottish Government have launched a consultation on the revised National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland

The aim of the consultation is to seek views on the tone, level of detail and approach in the revised guidance, in particular in relation to the description of new or significant aspects, and whether there are any omissions or aspects that have not been adequately addressed.

Consultation responses will be analysed alongside the feedback from online engagement sessions.  Views will inform the final content of the revised National Guidance, and future developments in child protection improvement work more generally. The final revised National Guidance will be published online in spring 2021. This will ensure accessibility and allow the National Guidance to be updated regularly to reflect legislative, policy and practice developments.
