1000 Voices

The First Minister is listening

The last time the Scottish Parliament listened to care experienced young people, the Children and Young People Act was introduced and some really big changes were made to care. We know that when the care experienced voice is heard, the path to real change becomes clearer.

The outcomes for care experienced people have been poor for too long. We know that we can’t keep doing the same thing over and over again and expect different results. That’s why we called on the next First Minister of Scotland to listen to 1000 care experienced people over the course of the next Parliament and to take action.

Over the coming two years, the First Minister wants to hear from one thousand care experienced people, of all ages, to understand how we can make things better. As Chief Corporate Parent, the First Minister agrees that the route to long lasting change is through the voice of care experienced people.

1000 Voices and the Care Review

Those voices will also inform the independent, root and branch review of care. The chair of the review, Fiona Duncan, has called on care experienced people to get involved.
