Consultation on the Pregnancy and Parenthood in Young People Strategy

Tuesday, July 7, 2015

ISBN: 9781785445149

This consultation seeks views on a range of actions in relation to the Pregnancy and Parenthood in Young People Strategy in Scotland

Executive Summary

This consultation is on the first Scottish Strategy focused on pregnancy and parenthood amongst young people. It aims to increase the choices and opportunities available to young people which will support their wellbeing and prosperity across the life course. The Strategy addresses the fundamental causes of pregnancy in young people and its consequences, with actions focused on how we can impact on the wider environmental and social influences and individual experiences which effect inequalities. Reducing levels of pregnancy in young people helps to reduce the likelihood of poverty and a recurring cycle from one generation to the next.

 

The aim of consultation is to ensure young people and professionals who work with or are responsible for making decisions that affect young people are aware of the draft strategy, what this involves for them and have an opportunity to influence the draft Strategy.
