Sign up to change care leavers lives

We’re campaigning for real and radical changes to the lives of our care leavers, some of the most vulnerable young people in Scotland.

Take a bold step and sign up to the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant.

Care leavers need all corporate parents and those involved in their lives to commit to the Covenant's principles and actions so they can get the bright future they deserve. 

Calling all corporate parents

Sign up and incorporate the Covenant's principles and actions in your Corporate Parenting Plan. That way you can make sure you're meeting your responsibilities under Part 10 (Aftercare) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.
