The impact of COVID-19 is particularly stark for children, families and frontline workers, particularly those living and working in areas of significant disadvantage.
As a response to the urgent needs of children and their families during the COVID-19 pandemic, services and organisations have had to adapt rapidly; putting new arrangements into place and adapting existing ones.
Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS) has started a new piece of research in partnership with Policy Scotland and local authorities to document responses to, and the impact of, COVID-19 on children and families.
The project aims to collect empirical evidence to inform national and local policy and practice about service responses to and experiences of children and young people living in high poverty settings to the COVID-19 virus pandemic.
