COVID-19 Coronavirus Information Point for Children's Care and Protection


This public health emergency brings great challenges for everyone, especially children in need of care and protection, their families and carers, and those supporting them.

While the impact of this will be felt by all, we know that it will further exacerbate the challenging circumstances of children, young people, parents, and carers who were already dealing with existing stresses and strains in their lives.

There is emergency legislation and new guidance in development that will also have an impact on the delivery of support services, the duties of public authorities and lives of children, young people and their families. CELCIS will be adding this information to this page too.

CELCIS has gathered together important guidance, information and resources to help many of the people they work with in Scotland and the UK.
