GCVS recently submitted a response to the consultation on the Scottish Parliament’s Children (Equal Protection from Assault) (Scotland) Bill which calls for the equal protection of children from assault by prohibiting the physical punishment of children by parents and others caring for, or in charge of, children.
Our Everyone’s Children Project works to inform, support and advocate on behalf of Third Sector organisations delivering services to Children, Young People and Families and so were delighted to have the opportunity to comment on this important Bill.
If you would like more information on the Equal Protection Bill or, to find out more about Everyone’s Children please contact Suzie Scott on 0141 332 244 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

In response to feedback from citizens and services GCVS worked with a range of partners to develop these guides to the Personal Independence Payment process.
Our Know the Score Guides are intended to help people applying for PIP or preparing for their PIP Assessment.
Guide 1 – Explains the points system and how points are awarded, we hope it helps people better understand the sort of information they should share on their application form and at their assessment.
Guide 2 – Focuses on the assessment. It has information about the Glasgow assessment centre and what happens when you get there. We’ve also included a section for people who might be acting as a supporter or advocate for a family member, friend or someone they work with.
As always we’d really like your feedback and comments, so, if you have suggestions on how the Guides could be improved please contact Johanna on 0141 271 2302 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
