Get involved

Ways to get involved

Achieving lasting change for Scotland’s children and young people in care is complex and challenging. It is a task which cannot be realised without listening to and taking account of the views of a whole host of people and organisations.

We want to hear from and talk to:
  • Children and young people
  • Care leavers of all ages
  • Families and carers with experience of the care system
  • Individuals and organisations working with and for  children and families

A role for everyone

There will be lots of different ways to take part in the Journey stage and the Care Review will work with you to find a role or activity that suits.

We are currently planning opportunities for people to be involved in the work of the Journey stage and will update this page with more information shortly.

If you’d like to take part in the Journey stage you can let the Care Review know by filling out your details on the form below.

Taking part and wellbeing

Taking part in activities can involve conversations about experiences or issues that you may find difficult. The Care Review is fully committed to making sure that you are given the support that you need to take part in a way that feels safe and right for you.

Many organisations involved in the Care Review already provide individual support to young people who have engaged through them, with the Review and we encourage people to use any existing and familiar support networks that are in place.

The Care Review also works with Health in Mind who are providing a dedicated wellbeing service to anyone who is taking part in this work who does not have existing support in place.

You can also can contact Health in Mind by phone on 0131 225 8508 or by emailing lorraine@health-in-mind.org.uk.

If you wish to you can complete a self referral form for Health in mind and email to the address above.
