The Scottish Government's aspiration for children and young people is to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up. The National Parenting Strategy seeks to turn that aspiration into practical action by celebrating the importance and achievements of parents, by strengthening the support available to them and by addressing other factors that can impact on parenting.

Aileen Campbell, MSP, Minister for Children and Young People will launch the National Parenting Strategy at the Parenting across Scotland conference. The conference provides an opportunity to hear what the National Parenting Strategy contains, to discuss its content with a wide range of parenting practitioners and policy makers, and to influence its future development and implementation.

In addition to the launch of the National Parenting Strategy, there are a wide range of high profile speakers, workshops highlighting the latest research and practice in working with parents, and stalls showcasing parenting organisations.

This event is designed for anyone directly or indirectly involved with parenting work and involved in working with children and their families.
