Consultation on the revised National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland

January 2021. We responded to the Scottish Government’s consultation on the revised National Guidance on Child Protection.

We told them that the guidance needed to be strengthened by making the links to the children’s human rights frameworks clearer, and highlighted that 16 and 17-year-olds should receive the same protection as young children.
