The Children and Young People Bill will be introduced to Parliament in 2013 and will set out fundamental reforms to the way services for children and young people are designed, delivered and reviewed.
The Scottish Government conducted a large-scale series of national engagement events to discuss the proposals for reforms with a wide range of stakeholders. In addition, it published a consultation document on 4 July 2012 which invited views on key areas of proposed reform: children’s rights; early learning and childcare; getting it right for every child; and the care system.
The Aberlour Glasgow Bridges service started work with families affected by parental substance misuse in June 2008 in the Possilpark area of North East Glasgow.

This resource is the full report into research undertaken to review and evaluate Glasgow Bridges.
The report reviews evidence about early intervention and the approaches, policies and programmes which help give children aged 0-3 the social and emotional bedrock they need to reach their full potential.
The research on which this report is based examines child contact proceedings as a legal process, to identify if, how and when domestic violence was presented before the court and then factored into judicial decision making.
