The CELCIS National Conference, a key event in the children's sector calendar which provides an opportuntiy for everyone working with and for children and young people to debate and discuss some of the big issues for the sector. 

CELCIS 2015: Travelling together

Held in Glasgow on 7 October 2015, the conference was a great success.

We heard from lots of contributors on the new Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, and how we can work together to improve the lives of our most vulnerable children and young people. We also examined the opportunities and potential challenges it brings and the tools to help us manage these changes.
