We organise a range of events to publicise new findings, to engage with new audiences and to promote and support the use of our data. These include an Annual Conference, policy seminars and Data Workshops. We also provide speakers and exhibition material for other events. If you are running an event, national or local, and would like someone from the GUS team to talk about our findings or to exhibit the latest information available, please contact

For regular updates about our upcoming events, sign up to our Growing Up in Scotland mailing list.

Growing Up in Scotland 10 year anniversary conference

6 October 2015 @ The University of Edinburgh

We held this conference to reflect on 10 years of research from the study. We also discussed how the findings could be used to tackle inequalities in child health and development outcomes – to make Scotland fairer.

We also wanted to thank the 14,000 families who had taken part in the GUS to that point.
