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.

Supporting the Third Sector Project

Building on the success of the National Third Sector GIRFEC (NTSG) Project, Children in Scotland continues its commitment to support the Third Sector to be a strong partner in Children’s Services Planning, as in Part 3 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, through the Supporting the Third Sector Project.

The ambition of the project is that the Third Sector is fully integrated with Community Planning Partnerships (CPPs) and contributes to the strategic planning of local children and family services as equal partners.
