Children and young people who are looked after away from home face real challenges as they grow up. They have often experienced abuse, neglect and the impact of poverty on their families and are amongst the most vulnerable children in Scotland.
The manifesto proposes that the debate be energised by development of a National Strategy for children and young people who are looked after away from home.
