Kitbag for Families is an approach and a set of resources to help children grow up calm and confident, building relationships in families of all shapes and sizes.

However, any worker involved with children and/or families trying to navigate changes would find it helpful.

Children in Scotland Annual Conference 2013
Every child, Every childhood
Children in Scotland’s annual conference is the flagship event for the children’s sector, bringing together all those who are making a difference to the lives of children and young people in Scotland. As we celebrate 20 years working for every child and every childhood this event offers a unique opportunity to meet and collaborate with policy makers, practitioners and experts from across the sector; to share ideas and knowledge, and to instigate positive change in the lives of all Scotland’s children.
While the Children and Young People’s Act becomes reality, support for children and families is feeling the pressure of austerity measures. This makes it more vital than ever to keep children and young people at the centre of our work for the future.
