Bairns' Hoose: project plan

This project plan sets out the steps we will take to meet our Programme for Government Commitment which aims to ensure that all eligible children in Scotland will have access to a ‘Bairns’ Hoose’ by 2025.

The Scottish approach to Barnahus

We will continue to work with key stakeholders, and children and young people, to develop a rights-based Scottish approach to establishing a national Bairns' Hoose model which reflects all relevant policy and legislative developments across children's services, justice and health and social care in Scotland. This will be based on the requirements of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), and aligned with the Scottish Government's policy programmes of Keep The Promise and Getting it right for every child (GIRFEC), which seek to recognise that all children must receive the right help at the right time.
