SOSCN Regional Events

The Scottish Government is consulting on the recently published draft framework for out of school care and the government's OSC team would like to hear your thoughts on the questions which form the basis of the consultation.

The draft framework on Out of School Care sets out what the government knows about the out of school care sector in Scotland and asks questions about what the Scottish Government can do to support families in accessing high quality, flexible and affordable services which benefit children and parents and carers.

SOSCN is pleased to confirm that the Scottish Government's OSC team will be joining us at our regional events and that OSC services will have the opportunity to help shape the next development stage of the National Framework for Out of School Care in Scotland.
