Inform: Children and Young People Act (Part 12)

Year: 2014
Topic: Corporate parenting, Legislation, Looked after at home
Author: CELCIS

This is the second in a series of briefings from CELCIS that explain specific parts of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (2014 Act).

Each briefing clearly sets out the rights of looked after children, care leavers and carers, and the new duties, powers and expectations placed on public bodies. This briefing examines changes introduced to family support services by the 2014 Act.

This part of the Act was referred to as ‘Counselling Services’ in early versions of the Bill. The aim of Part 12 is to ensure that a range of ‘relevant services’ is available to children (and their families) at risk of becoming ‘looked after’ by a local authority. The types of services which must be made available by local authorities will be set out by Scottish Ministers in due course.
