What does the Extraordinary Ordinary mean to you?

Our theme for this year's SIRCC conference was 'The extraordinary ordinary: the power of everyday care'. It has never been more true or important than this year, with lockdown, schools having been closed, and the COVID-19 public health emergency changing how we work and communicate.

We've been hearing how working practices have adapted to continue to provide the best care for children and young people in residential child care across Scotland, in exceptionally challenging and difficult circumstances. We've heard wonderful stories and experiences from you and our children and young people and we'd love to hear more and share these during #SIRCC2020 Online.

How to take part

We want to know what the 'extraordinary ordinary' has meant to you and the young people you care for. We would like you to send us examples that capture the experience of the last few months. What have you learned from young people?

You can send us:

  • a photograph*
  • a drawing
  • a poem or quote
  • a short video*
  • an audio message

We are keen to hear from practitioners and young people.

We'll be sharing these during #SIRCC2020 Online.

The detail

You have until Friday 25 September to send these electronically to the CELCIS Team at - we'll send a confirmation email to let you know we've received it. You can also contact us here if you've any questions or have trouble sending in your submission.


* Before submitting please ensure you have the necessary permissions to share if the images or video show the young people in your care.
