Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014

The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 is a key part of the Scottish Government’s strategy for making Scotland the best place in the world for children to grow up. It made several changes to the law covering lots of different areas. These include changes to early learning and childcare, free school meals for children in P1-3, and extra support for looked after children and care leavers. It also puts responsibilities on Scottish Ministers and public bodies to consider how they can promote children’s rights and requires them to report on their progress on this every three years.
