childrenDoran Review

The strategic review of learning provision for children and young people with complex additional support needs was commissioned in 2010 by the Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning.  Peter Doran was appointed to undertake the 'Doran Review', and work began in October 2012.  The final Doran Review report The Right Help at the right time and right place, published in November 2012, provides a set of recommendations aimed at providing better outcomes and experiences for children and young people with complex additional support needs.

Implementation of the Doran Review recommendations

The report Meeting the needs of Scotland's children and young people with complex additional support needs: The Scottish Government's response to the Doran Review sets out the Scottish Government's action in response to the recommendations.

A Project Board was set up in June 2013 to oversee the delivery of the Strategic Commissioning Project.  Five workstreams have been established to support delivery of the Strategic Commissioning Project.
