Part 1: Introduction

The Children (Scotland) Act 2020 (the 2020 Act) gained Royal Assent on 1 October 2020. The 2020 Act builds on the existing Children (Scotland) Act 1995 (the 1995 Act). During the passage of the 2020 Act through the Scottish Parliament, the Scottish Government committed to a full and public consultation on the establishment of the registers of child welfare reporters, curators ad litem appointed in cases under section 11 of the 1995 Act and solicitors who can be appointed when an individual has been prohibited from personally conducting a case themselves. The last register covers both cases under section 11 of the 1995 Act and Children’s Hearings court proceedings.
