Practice implications of Coronavirus for children in conflict with the law

Published in News on 9 Apr 2020

The Coronavirus (Scotland) Act received Royal Assent on 6 April 2020, bringing wide-ranging provisions across a broad range of policy areas, with several implications for children in conflict with the law.

The Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ) has published a report that documents its analysis of the issues. It also collates concerns and experiences shared with the CYCJ team by practitioners and managers working under unprecedented and challenging circumstances to support children and maintain their care, safety, health and wellbeing.

The report will be updated an ongoing basis to ensure practitioners and managers have the most up-to-date information available in one place.
