CELCIS Comment: Inquiry into Historical Abuse of Children in Care 

Jennifer Davidson, Director, the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland (CELCIS), based at the University of Strathclyde, welcomed the independent inquiry into the historical abuse of children in care in Scotland, which starts today.

Jennifer Davidson said:

'This is an historic day for the people of Scotland, particularly survivors and their supporters who have campaigned for a long time to be heard. I hope that survivors can find a way to use their painful experiences and memories to get answers and to ensure this doesn’t happen again.'

At CELCIS, the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children we strive to improve the experiences and life chances of children and young people in Scotland who are looked after, their families, and those who have left care. We work alongside the professionals who touch their lives, and the wider systems responsible for their care.

We work in innovative ways, promoting learning and reflection with strategic leaders, managers and with practitioners, as well as across whole systems. We deliver training, consultancy and service improvement, and policy and evidence implementation using a range of improvement methodologies to ensure continuing and lasting improvements.
