COSLA STATEMENT ON CHILD PROTECTION IMPROVEMENT PROGRAMME REPORT & SYSTEMS REVIEW

Councillor Stephanie Primrose, COSLA's Education, Children & Young People Spokesperson said:

"The issue of child protection is of utmost importance to our members and it is only right that this matter receives political scrutiny at both a local and national level. That is why I fully welcome today's report on both the systems review and the wider CPIP report.

"As illustrated in last week's Improvement Service benchmarking report, our spend on child protection is the fastest growing area of council spend and proves how much effort and resource we put into this area.

"Our job is to get it right for every child - especially those who are the most vulnerable - and COSLA will work with Scottish Government to make sure we continue to improve these vital services across the country."
