Both consultations asked for views on changes that will happen as part of implementing the Children (Scotland) Act 2020.  

One of the consultations sought views on the operation of the register of child welfare reporters and how to manage the registration in terms of training and skill requirements. The other consultation sought views on what should be covered in the minimum standards for child contact services, how the standards should be monitored and what the complaints procedures should be.
