Good care helps prevent them from being ‘lost’ in the system

The full independent care review group has now been established, FM Nicola Sturgeon confirmed to a reception of ‘care experienced young people’ from across Scotland.  The group will look at legislation, practices, culture and ethos of the care system across Scotland.

They will listen to young people with experience of care and their families & providers of care and particularly, children & young people in care now, to inform its recommendations to improve both the quality of life & outcomes of young people in care.
