Keeping the Promise following Care Review

This feature provides access to the findings of the Promise following the Care review and will build to show how across Aberdeenshire we are 'Keeping the Promise'. 

'The Promise' as outlined on their website at is "responsible for driving the work of change demanded by the findings of the Independent Care Review. It works with all kinds of organisations to support shifts in policy, practice and culture so Scotland can #KeepThePromise it made to care experienced infants, children, young people, adults and their families - that every child grows up loved, safe and respected, able to realise their full potential."

The Promise team began their work in July 2020 following the Care Review findings published in July 2020. Their role is to ensure.that the changes necessary to ensure that all Scotland’s children continue to grow up ‘loved, safe and respected’ are embedded in services provided across Scotland by its statutory agencies, local authorities and third sector. 

This feature will connect you to all the resources you need to keep you in touch with the work of the promise and even more important Aberdeenshire's response to the promise.

We will be running surveys and discussions.

We will be engaging with young people, with carers and with our family of Corporate Parents to ensure we work for the future of of care experienced young people.

To start with, here are a couple of links to information on the promise, a webinar and some slides of the work they do and the support they are looking for from us all.
