Further to our Child Protection Overview Report 2009 - 2012 we have produced a summary report of our findings from the three year programme of child protection inspections across Scotland.

This report provides a brief summary of what we found across the whole inspection programme. In each of Scotland's 32 council areas, we looked at how well services protect vulnerable and at-risk children from abuse, neglect and exploitation. It describes, in general terms, what we found to be working well, what is improving, and what needs to change. 

The summary report can be found here.
