Children's outcomes

In this strand we aim to explore the factors affecting outcomes for children and young people in Scotland.

Lead: Professor Morag Treanor, Heriot-Watt University and Fiona Mitchell, University of Strathclyde

Our research will examine datasets about children and young people being brought together for the first time in Scotland, and paint a picture of academic achievement, health, economic activity and wellbeing. This will support the national ambitions for people in Scotland (captured in the National Performance Framework), namely that children grow up loved, safe and protected so they can reach their full potential.
