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.
