Voluntary Care Arrangements for Children and Families in Scotland: Learning from the use, understanding, and experience of Section 25.

Project: Research

Project Details


This project will investigate voluntary care arrangements (Section 25 of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995) in Scotland and how these are used, understood, and experienced by children, families and practitioners. These arrangements place a duty on local authorities to care for a child or young person where they consider it necessary in order to respond to the care and protection needs of a child, and where their parents either agree, or are not present.
