”˜Out of Area’ Placements and Children’s RightsType: News
Topic: Policy and legislation
Published on: 19th October 2017
We had a good meeting yesterday with the Young People’s Commissioner Scotland to talk about so-called ”˜out of area’ placements from a children’s rights perspective. We know only too well about the struggle faced by many children and young people to access the services they need and want when they are considered ”˜out of area’ by the local authority. Hopefully, this is the start of a bigger national discussion on this really important issue.
