Support to Corporate Parents

Be the difference.

Whether you provide day to day care directly to children and young people – or you provide opportunities through services and support to help – get the help you need to be the best parent you can.

Who are corporate parents?

Corporate Parents are the public bodies named in law as having responsibilities to young people who are looked after and care experienced. The Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 says that 24 public bodies have a responsibility to understand the lives of Scotland’s looked after young people and respond to their needs as any parent should.

What support can corporate parents get from Who Cares? Scotland

The Scottish Government funds Who Cares? Scotland to provide a range of different training opportunities to Corporate Parents. Our training supports organisations to continually improve their policies, procedures and practice. Rather than provide the answers, our training brings care experienced people together with those at a strategic and operational level to plan the way forward.
