ScotGov: The latest findings of a study shining a spotlight on the realities of life as a child in Scotland have been published. Launched in 2005, the Growing Up in Scotland study (GUS), gathers the experiences of 14,000 children & their families including attitudes towards children's services, parenting, childcare, healthcare and education.
The study, carried out by the Scottish Centre for Social Research, tracks youngsters and how their circumstances change over time and, in particular, how early experiences can impact on later life. This fifth set of reports explores a range of issues experienced by children in the first 5 years of their lives including parenting & child health, cognitive development, service use & support, and the impact of significant events.
