Our Corporate Parenting Plan sets out our commitment to people with care experience.
In April 2015, the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act came into effect. This legislation outlines the Scottish Government’s commitment to making Scotland the best place in the world to grow up. The Act established a new legal framework for public services to work together in support of children, young people and families in Scotland. Our Corporate Parenting Plan is based on the duties listed in this legislation and outlines our action plan.
We consider our action plan as an opportunity to continually improve. We are consistently monitoring and improving our plan, and identifying new actions. Throughout this process, our aim is to strengthen the relationships that we have built so far, make new connections while continuing to engage with organisations and people with lived experience of care.
Our Corporate Parenting Action Plan for the period 2021 – 2023 outlines the work we will do under six key themes to fulfil our duties as a Corporate Parent. Our action plan details how we will work to improve our response and opportunities for people with care experience of all ages.
