Work with Corporate Parents

More people than ever have a responsibility to make sure care experienced people have the same life chances as everyone else.

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.

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.
