The Statutory Guidance on Part 9 (Corporate Parenting) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014

This Statutory Guidance is issued by Scottish Ministers under section 63 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 to provide corporate parents with information and advice.

The Statutory Guidance on Part 9 (Corporate Parenting) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 has been published and is available on the Scottish Government website. 

This guidance provides corporate parents with information and advice about how they should fulfil the duties set out in Part 9 (Corporate Parenting) of the 2014 Act. These duties came into force on 1 April 2015.  

This guidance sets out the parameters within which corporate parents should develop their own approaches, either individually or in partnership. Those approaches should also be shaped by the corporate parent’s primary functions, and informed by the needs, views and experiences of looked after children and care leavers.

This guidance should be read alongside the guidance for Part 1 (Rights of Children), Part 3 (Children’s Services Planning), Part 4 (Provision of Named Persons), Part 5 (Child’s Plan), Part 10 (Aftercare) and section 96 (Assessment of wellbeing) of the 2014 Act.
