Public attitudes towards people with care experience published

A survey, commissioned by the Life Changes Trust and carried out by the Scottish Centre for Social Research (ScotCen) on public attitudes to young people with care experience has just been published.

The report examines attitudes, perceptions on why young people end up in care, their likelihood to become involved in the justice system, and views on forming relationships with young people with care experience.

It highlights that while the majority of people in Scotland do not have negative views towards young people with care experience, a significant minority have attitudes that could be considered to be discriminatory or stigmatising.

CELCIS is currently working in partnership with the Life Changes Trust and the Robertson Trust on an initiative aimed at improving public understanding of the issues affecting vulnerable children and families, and of the policy solutions available, through a programme to 'reframe' how children's social care (looked after children and care leavers) in Scotland is conceptualised and presented in public and political discourse.
