Children and Young People’s Commissioner
Scottish local authorities are continuing to use “traumatising and humiliating” restraint methods on children as young as five in residential care, almost two years after signing up to keep The Promise - an agreement published following the Care Review - to abolish it.
Scotland’s Children and Young People’s Commissioner has written to the Home Office's accommodation provider, calling for an “urgent review" of a Glasgow mother and baby unit for asylum seekers.
Serious allegations have been made by parents, who claim they had to remove children with additional support needs from a Glasgow primary school.
Care charities have called for new guidance to make it easier for those who have been looked after to access their records.
Charities in Scotland say they are paying out hundreds of thousands of pounds to help people left destitute by a 'failing' asylum system.
