CRWIA is a purpose built policy and legislation impact assessment (IA) originally developed for use by Scottish Government officials (but can also be used by external organisations). It was launched on 15 June 2015 as part of the implementation strategy for Ministerial duties under Part 1 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.
CRWIA covers individual children, groups of children, and all children up to age 18. It has been developed as an approach, a tool and a published output. It is intended to help us champion the interests of children, as well as challenge us to think about what more we can do to place children and young people at the centre of our policies.
