The Scottish Care Leavers Covenant is a bold and committed promise to young people who have experience of the care system: that they matter.
The Covenant was created by an ‘Alliance’ of stakeholders, to close the gap between policy and practice for care leavers.
Make a promise to act
The Covenant supports corporate parents to deliver changes in action and practice to bring improvement and consistency to the care of these young people. It offers clear guidance on how to meet the needs of young people who are often disadvantaged as a result of their care experiences.
We need the Covenant, to change thinking and practice, effecting the cultural shift needed to tackle these issues. Support the agenda for change: Read the Covenant!
