    Abstract

    CELCIS is the Centre for excellence for looked after children in Scotland. We exist to improve the experiences and life chances of children and young people in Scotland who are 'looked after' by local authorities, and those who have left care. We do this by working alongside the professionals who touch their lives, and within the wider systems responsible for their care. We welcome this opportunity to submit a written response to the Independent Advisory Group on Stop and Search. This is relevant to looked after children and care leavers, and we feel that the impact of 'stop and search' on this group could potentially be very different to its impact on their peers who do not have experience of being looked after.
