Bail and Release from Custody (Scotland) Bill: children's rights and wellbeing impact assessment

Children's rights and wellbeing impact assessment (CRWIA) examining the potential impact on children's human rights of the Bail and Release from Custody (Scotland) Bill.


9. How will you communicate to children and young people the impact of the policy/measure on their rights?

Providing information to children and young people on how their rights will be impacted helps to ensure that policy making is transparent. Are you publishing a child-friendly or accessible CRWIA?

The general content of the Bill will be communicated to some CYP via events throughout summer recess including a joint Staff/CYCJ session in response to the consultation response which was submitted. A trauma informed approach will be crucial for this work, with the Scottish Government committed to ensuring that any engagement with CYP on this Bill does not have adverse effects. Accordingly, CYP will not be directly engaged around the Bill unless they are being supported by a relevant organisation.
