Influencing Priorities

Barnardo’s Scotland is committed to making positive change for children, young people and families in Scotland.

Our policy team uses our collective knowledge and experience to influence policy and legislation, with a particular focus on children in and leaving care, child sexual exploitation and abuse, and mental health and emotional wellbeing. We also produce a range of policy briefings and consultation responses for politicians, researchers and professionals.

You can help make a difference too - add your voice to the consultation on Equal Protection for children in Scotland by 4th August.
