Practice Implications of Coronavirus for Children in Conflict with the Law: An Ongoing Review

Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


The Coronavirus (Scotland) Act received Royal Assent on April 6, 2020, bringing wide-ranging provisions across a broad range of policy areas, with several implications for children in conflict with the law. This report documents CYCJ’s analysis of the issues and collates concerns and experiences shared with us by practitioners and managers working under unprecedented and challenging circumstances to support children and maintain their care, safety, health and wellbeing.

We will update this on an ongoing basis to ensure practitioners and managers have the most up to date information available in one place.
