A new survey is being carried out by CELCIS to help develop a deeper understanding of what can help parents when there is a possibility that a child may become ‘looked after’ by a local authority.
CELCIS is reviewing, for the Scottish Government, the implementation of legislation designed to support families where children may become looked after. Part 12 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 places a duty on Local Authorities to make arrangements to ensure relevant services (specified as Family group decision making services and Support for parenting) are provided for eligible families.
We are keen to hear the views of people who provide services to families on how they think these services can help to make things better for children and their parents at times of difficulty, helping them stay together where possible.
We invite all those supporting families, including local authorities and the third sector, to take part in our 15-20 minute survey. The deadline is Friday 23 November.
