About the Evidence Bank

The Evidence Bank is a collection of direct quotes from children and young people on a diverse range of subjects.

We have collated a wide-ranging selection of opinions expressed by a diverse mix of children from across the country. Taken from numerous reports from leading Children’s Sector organisations and other relevant articles, there has never been a more extensive and informative collection of children’s voices in one place. In this way we believe children and young people can be fully involved in helping seek solutions to the most pressing issues they face today.

About Children in Scotland

Giving all children in Scotland an equal chance to flourish is at the heart of everything we do. By bringing together a network of people working with and for children, alongside children and young people themselves, we offer a broad, balanced and independent voice. We create solutions, provide support and develop positive change across all areas affecting children in Scotland.

We do this by listening, gathering evidence, and applying and sharing our learning, while always working to uphold children’s rights. Our range of knowledge and expertise means we can provide trusted support on issues as diverse as the people we work with and the varied lives of children and families in Scotland.

National Third Sector GIRFEC Project

The National Third Sector GIRFEC project is a partnership between Children in Scotland and the Coalition of Care and Support Providers in Scotland (CPPS) to support local and regional third sector organisations navigate the challenges and opportunities of children’s services in order to deliver improved outcomes for children, young people and their families.

The Project was first launched in early 2013 to embed the third sector’s role in implementing the Getting it right for every child policy and requirements of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.
