    Abstract

    This is the second in a series of briefings from CELCIS that explain specific parts of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (2014 Act). Each briefing clearly sets out the rights of looked after children, care leavers and carers, and the new duties, powers and expectations placed on public bodies. This series is designed to support organisations and practitioners involved in implementing the provisions of the 2014 Act, assisting them to fully realise the potential of this legislation to improve care experiences for children and young people. Please note that official guidance will be published by the Scottish Government in due course. For commentary and analysis on the origins of the 2014 Act, the legislative process and accompanying debates, please see the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 section of the CELCIS website.
