Our goal is simple. We want to make a difference. We are totally committed to making positive and lasting improvements in the experiences, life chances and outcomes for Scotland's looked after children and young people. Taking a multi-agency, collaborative approach towards making sustainable changes, we help break down barriers, and lead the way in changing and challenging both thinking and ways of working, with everyone whose work touches the lives of looked after children.
