On 5 February, the Independent Care Review launched the findings of its 3-year programme of work to identify and deliver lasting change in Scotland’s ‘care system.
The lived experience of people are at the very heart of the Care Review and the five reports produced reflect this:
The Promise reflects what over 5,500 care experienced children and adults, families and the paid and unpaid workforce told the Care Review in the hope that Scotland is listening. It will tell Scotland what it must do to make sure its most vulnerable children feel loved and have the childhood they deserve.
The Plan explains how this change must happen.
The Rules demonstrates the current legislative framework and how it must change to achieve The Promise.
Iriss believes in the importance of including the voices of people in the design and delivery of care and support, and commits to keeping the Promise as part of our work to support the social services workforce.
