Coronavirus (COVID-19): supplementary national child protection guidance

This guidance is for Chief Officers, professional leaders in children's services and child protection committees, who should ensure it is taken account of within local partnerships.

It supplements the existing national guidance for child protection in Scotland, and should be read alongside other COVID-19 guidance. It will be kept under review and updated.


Copies of both single agency and multi agency child protection procedures can be found in this section.
