The policy landscape
The Pregnancy and Parenthood in Young People Strategy covers many complex areas that are influenced by a large number of policies, legislation and guidance across the Scottish Government as shown on the following page. It is therefore important that the Strategy compliments existing policy and practice.
The supporting document Pregnancy and Parenthood in Young People Strategy Policy Mapping sets out the policies, legislation and guidance that impact directly in this area. Most of the policies have similar ambitions and goals, with key themes such as equality and fairness at the heart. It is not a definitive list but it provides an overview of the key policies that link to the strategy and impact upon services across Scotland.
