Children's Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessment guidance
CRWIA Approach

CRWIA Approach

CRWIA follows accepted impact assessment practice, and should take place as early as possible in the policy development cycle. The CRWIA takes the UNCRC as its starting point for measuring policy/measures for their compliance with the Articles of the Convention. Then it asks you to consider how the policy/measure will advance the realisation of children's rights in Scotland. You must provide evidence to support your conclusions.
