    Minister for Children, Young People and Keeping the Promise, Natalie Don, visited Glenrothes on Tuesday 24 October to announce the six successful locations that will become home to Scotland’s first Bairns’ Hoose test sites.

    Supported by £6 million Scottish Government funding, multi-agency partnerships in Fife, North Strathclyde, Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen City, Tayside, and the Outer Hebrides will set up pathfinders to provide coordinated comprehensive support for children and young people in the justice system.

    Services including child protection, recovery, healthcare, therapeutic support, and justice will be available which will provide a blueprint for a full pilot in 2025.

    The six multi-agency partnerships have been selected as part of the ‘Pathfinders’ phase of the programme to establish a Bairns’ Hoose in Scotland.

    The Bairns’ Hoose website has further details.
