Meeting the challenge of COVID-19: Examples of frontline practice in caring for children and young people

Across Scotland many people are continuing to support children, young people, and their families during this time, adapting in order to respond with care and protection where this is needed.

Through the use of creativity, compassion, and communication, we have seen alternative and new ways of working, innovative ideas, and people coming together to help to sustain relationships and offer some stability for young lives during these uncertain times.

Through a diverse range of examples of how people are meeting the challenge of responding to the effects of this public health emergency, we hope to record, reflect on, inform, and inspire others about the impact that these are having in the lives of care experienced children and young people, and all those who work and volunteer across public and voluntary services to support them.

We have identified some key themes within each of these examples.
