The Scottish Government’s Programme for Government 2021 – 2022: What might impact members

At the start of this month, the Scottish Government announced its Programme for Government, ‘A Fairer, Greener Scotland: the Programme for Government for 2021 to 2022’. The document sets out the actions of the Scottish Government in the coming year and beyond. It includes any new law or policy changes which will be made.

Included within the Programme for Government are a range of commitments which will have an impact on the Care Experienced community. Some of which we will be able to directly influence and shape with input from our members.

We’ve picked out the main commitments we think will impact our members and where there will be space to be involved in the work to shape the laws or policy changes. Check them out below.

If you would like to be involved in any of the influencing work around these commitments keep an eye on our social media where we will post any opportunities when they come up. We also have our Annual Participation Programme, which provides specific ways to share your views on important policy areas.

With thanks to Scottish Local Authorities, funding partners and donors who make our work possible.
