New reports from CNS on the impact of COVID-19 on families, children and young people in South Lanarkshire

6 Jan 2021

Children’s Neighbourhoods Scotland (CNS), the partnership between the GCPH and the University of Glasgow has published a new collection of resources exploring the impact of the first national COVID-19 lockdown on families, children and young people across communities in South Lanarkshire. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp focus the inequalities affecting children and families in high poverty rural communities in South Lanarkshire, and how these have been heightened by the crisis. CNS has conducted new research to understand the experiences of children and families from the perspective of service providers and frontline staff in South Lanarkshire and provides insights into the impacts of COVID-19 on children and families and how services have collaborated across sectors to respond to the urgent needs of communities and families during the pandemic. 

CNS has also recently published a review of the evidence on children and young people and rural poverty and social exclusion. This critical review examines how poverty and social exclusion are experienced by children and young people in rural areas of Scotland. The review concludes with a conceptual framework for improving outcomes for children and young people in rural Scotland.
