The Destination stage

January 2020 – March 2020

The final stage of the Independent Care Review


The Destination stage saw the Independent Care Review launch its final conclusions on Wednesday 5 February.


Read the Care Review’s final reports

Since February 2017, the Care Review has travelled across Scotland to listen carefully to infants, children and young people in care, and care experienced adults who have selflessly shared their experiences to make positive change a reality.

Over 5,500 people have told the Care Review their stories, with more than half having experience of the ‘care system’, and the remaining being members of the paid and unpaid workforce.

The Care Review has also considered the research into the ‘care system’ and commissioned its own research to fill knowledge gaps.

It has reviewed all of the laws and rules, collected data, and made connections across the ‘roots and branches’ of the ‘care system’.

The Care Review’s conclusions, to be published in the Destination stage, have been shaped and guided by stories and experiences of people from across Scotland.


The Care Review comes to you


Between Thursday 6 February and Care Day on Friday 21 February, the Care Review will be back on the road.

The Participation Hub team will be travelling across Scotland and would love to pay you a visit or host an event with you to celebrate your contribution.
