Date: 17th December 2021
Category: Health and health services


Closing date: 1st December 2021 – 31st January 2022

Healthcare Improvement Scotland are asking organisations to run one-off sessions, workshops or events with children, young people and families to explore what they would like to see in the standards.

This engagement pack outlines the proposed key areas the standards will focus on, such as key principles and the rights of the child, inclusive access, design and environment and involvement in the court and legal process. It also contains more information on the principles for engagement and how to respond.

Organisations from across Scotland will be able to claim for costs of up to £500 to support the delivery of this work.  

To find how you or your organisation can be involved in each of the four phases of engagement, please contact Rachel Hewitt, Programme Manager (
