Out of School Care in Scotland - a draft framework for consultation

Closes 6 Dec 2019

Opened 30 Aug 2019

Overview

Our draft framework on Out of School Care sets out what we know about the out of school care sector in Scotland and asks questions about what the Scottish Government can do to support families in accessing high quality, flexible and affordable services which benefit children and parents and carers.

Why We Are Consulting

We want future policies on Out of School Care to be shaped by the people who would benefit from them. We want to understand what children, parents and carers, professionals and experts think about the ways in which Out of School Care can give children opportunities to play and access life-enhancing experiences and support parents to work, train or study.
