The Scottish Government’s aspiration is for Scotland to be ‘the best place to grow up’. With the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 putting Getting it Right for Every Child on a statutory footing, there's a clear focus on promoting child wellbeing and identifying and responding to concerns at the earliest point.
Our conference explored how best to promote child wellbeing and offered an opportunity to discuss how well our response to children at risk matches what we know children need.
Rebuilding Childhood was the fourth in our programme of national conferences in Scotland. It showcased leading national and international expertise about how best to protect children from abuse.
Together we examined how we can harness and benefit from the latest developments in relevant areas of research and learning. We also discussed what this means for our practice and our structures.
We welcomed expert speakers from across the UK and internationally with keynote speeches, plenary panels and workshops covering the most recent developments and cutting-edge practice.
