This report provides an insight into the Permanence and Care Excellence (‘PACE’) programme – a Quality Improvement programme for children's services with CELCIS and partnerships in 27 of the 32 Scottish local authority areas.

The programme, which ran from 2014 - 2020, was aimed at supporting local authority partnerships across Scotland to reduce permanence planning timescales for looked after infants, children and young people using a Quality Improvement framework.

The report sets out the ways in which the PACE programme focused on leading and sustaining improvement, including how and why it was set up, and analysis on key parts of the programme: from the requirement to gain leadership buy in and engage with key people, to the importance of data in analysing successes.

It provides information on key practice changes that were tested and implemented, challenges that were overcome, and offers learning points relevant to improvement in public services more broadly.
