Play Scotland's 'Children, Young People and Placemaking in Scotland: a literature and policy review' draws together how children and young people’s rights relate to place, and how and why children and young people should be further involved in place-based decision-making.

The report draws together a summary of existing evidence on children, young people, and place, alongside current Scottish Government policy and ambitions, exploring the relationship between children and young people and the places they grow up in.

The aim is to provide an accessible evidence base to a wide range of stakeholders who need to incorporate children’s rights and needs into their work. Play Scotland also hope it can inform Children’s Rights and Wellbeing Impact Assessments going forward and raise ambitions for joined-up working where children and young people are placed at the centre of our systems and processes to bring about a better future for all.
