Children's Care and Justice Bill - policy proposals: consultation

This consultation covers potential legislative reforms to promote and advance the rights of children in the care and justice systems and people who have been harmed. 


9. Assessing Impact

9.1 Background

We propose to carry out impact assessments alongside the development of any new

legislation which would be required to implement the changes proposed in this consultation.

These include a Data Protection Impact Assessment, Child Rights and Wellbeing

Impact Assessment, Equality Impact Assessment (related to the protected

characteristics of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil

partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual

orientation). We would be interested in your views on these areas to help us in

developing these and any other necessary assessments.
