Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 Written Answer, 17/12/14 [S]

Written Answer given in response to John Mason's (SNP) question asking the Scottish Government whether the people appointed named persons under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 are in place and, if so, whether it will provide a breakdown by gender.

The Minister for Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell replied that The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act places a duty on the local authority and health board to make available the named person service to all children from birth up to 18 or school leaving age (whichever is later). The named person statutory requirement is scheduled for implementation in August 2016, and we are working with stakeholders towards that date.


For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 17 December 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
