Scottish Child Law Centre Annual Conference

The Child Protection Landscape in Scotland -

The Importance of “Happiness, Love and Understanding

Dame Elish Angiolini - Chair

All children in Scotland have a right to be protected and recover from violence, abuse and neglect and we all have a responsibility for child protection. Our 2019 Conference will discuss whether the current child protection legislation, policy and practice in Scotland is fit for purpose. The Conference will critically examine proposed changes to legislation, the link between neglect and poverty and whether the provision of non-legal responses such as love and kindness in a looked after setting can help meet the needs of children and young people in the Scottish child protection system.
