Consultation on South Ayrshire’s Parenting Promise
South Ayrshire’s Parenting Promise is a plan written for those who are care experienced and details what you can expect of us as your Corporate Parents. As Corporate Parents, under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, it is our role to make sure that our attention and resources are focused on upholding the rights, safeguarding and promoting the wellbeing of South Ayrshire’s ‘looked after children’ and ‘care leavers’.
It is important to us that South Ayrshire’s Parenting Promise shows how committed we are in South Ayrshire to working together to #KeepThePromise to all the children and families that we work with and for.
We have brought together different corporate parents from across South Ayrshire to write the plan. They were also joined by some of our Champions Board representatives who have used their lived experience of care to help us understand what’s working well in South Ayrshire and what we need to change.
