Growing Up in Scotland (GUS), a longitudinal study that is currently tracking the lives of two cohorts of children from across Scotland, marked its 10 Year anniversary with the publication of a report reflecting on the key findings to-date: ‘Tackling Inequalities in the Early Years: Key messages from 10 years of the Growing Up in Scotland study’

At the launch event on 6 October, GUS also presented findings from a new report ‘Growing Up in Scotland: The Circumstances and Experiences of 3-year-old children living in Scotland in 2007/08 and 2013′.

CRFR has been involved with the GUS study from the very start when our directors identified the need for a longitudinal study to provide new information about children’s lives in Scotland, and they have acted as academic advisers to the study since its launch in 2005. Several CRFR Directors have authored GUS research reports commissioned by the Scottish Government. CRFR also manages the Dissemination/ Knowledge Exchange element of the study – making sure that research findings and data are accessible to and used by a range of professionals working with and for children and their families.
