Sign up and improve opportunities for our care leavers

The Scottish Care Leavers Covenant is a bold step to make the changes needed to give care leavers the bright and better future they deserve.

It offers corporate parents guiding principles and actions to support the Aftercare section of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014.

We're asking corporate parents, and others, to endorse and sign the Covenant to enable the changes in practice needed to help our care leavers on their journey into adulthood.

Created by a cross-sector ‘Alliance’ of stakeholders, including CELCIS, Barnardo’s Scotland, Who Cares? Scotland, Quarriers, Life Changes Trust, the Centre for Youth and Criminal Justice (CYCJ), Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (IRISS), and the Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum.
