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 in care
  • Care leavers – young and old
  • Families and carers with experience of the care system
  • Individuals and organisations working with and for children and families

The Review has a number of stages until its completion.  In this stage, ‘Discovery’, we have been engaging widely across Scotland to help define the vision and scope of the Care Review.

Our actions and recommendations in the next stage ‘the Journey’ is being guided by what we have learned in this stage.

Join a go-to group

The Independent Care Review is forming a ‘goto’ group of children and young people who are currently in care and one for recently care experienced adults.  The participants will be asked to take part in a range of activities throughout the Review to look at key recommendations and to comment on whether they believe that these will deliver the change required – or not!  Find out more about this opportunity via the button below.
