The Scottish Government has formed an advisory group on healthy body image for children and young people that will identify specific actions to help children and young people achieve a healthy body image.
A new Bill has been proposed by Johann Lamont MSP that is designed to improve outcomes for children and young people with a disability in the transition to adulthood. It aims to ensure every disabled child with an impairment or long-term health condition has a right to a Transition Plan.
