Scoping Study on proposed ‘centre for excellence for a child’s wellbeing in Scotland’

Date: 19th February 2015
Category: Respect for the views of the child

A review is being undertaken by Romy Langeland on behalf of the Scottish Government to explore what a theoretical 'centre for excellence for a child's wellbeing' might look like.

This review will involve looking at the current 'centres for excellence' that work most directly in this area and receive Scottish Government funding: WithScotland, CELCIS and the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice (CYCJ).

The review will explore whether the centres are configured most effectively already or if a better approach is possible, in the context of the overriding acceptance of the need to put the child at the centre of decision-making. As part of the review Romy Langeland will be consulting a wide range of stakeholders.
