Consultation response: Protecting children: Review of section 12 of the Children and Young Persons (Scotland) Act 1937 and section 42 of the Sexual Offences (Scotland) Act 2009

Year: 2018
Topic: Legislation
Author: Lizzie Morton

Our response supports the explicit protection for children from emotional abuse within the law.

Legislative reform is one part of the overall approach required to protect children from abuse and neglect. Our response considers other important areas of focus, including provision of early and effective family support, and recognising the ecological context of children and families’ lives.
