The Scottish Care Leavers Covenant was launched in October 2015, to help change the lives of care leavers. It supports Scotland’s corporate parents, carers, practitioners, managers and decision makers. Over 500 organisations and individuals have endorsed the Covenant so far and it’s being used by corporate parents, at both strategic and operational level, to remove barriers, change culture and improve core practice.
We're offering leaders, decision makers and practitioners an opportunity to reflect, find out about the latest research, share learning from operational and strategic perspectives, and to meet and network.
It's two years since the launch of the Covenant - what's changed and how have you integrated it into your role as corporate parents? You'll hear about the journey so far and the opportunities and challenges faced.
We've planned a day packed with fantastic speakers, workshops that will stimulate debate and really get under the skin of the Covenant and of corporate parenting. We'll round the day off with an all-important networking event.
We’re delighted to announce our keynote speakers:
