Use and impact of bail and remand in Scotland with children

This report shares findings from a small nationwide study of the use of bail and remand with children in Scotland, undertaken by CYCJ to develop our understanding of the use of remand, the decision-making process about how bail and remand is enacted, and how this is experienced by children, their families and professionals. This research is based upon the lived experience of children, families and practitioners from across Scotland.

An accessible version is available for a younger and wider audience. This is accompanied by ‘Dan’s Story’, a short animation to help children, young people and their families better understand the implications of bail and remand, and who can help.
