The Promise in South Ayrshire

South Ayrshire's Parenting Promise
In 2016 the Independent Care Review was commissioned by the Scottish Government to conduct a root and branch review of Scotland's care system. Between February 2017 and February 2020, the Care Review heard over 5,500 experiences from children, young people and adults who had lived in care and the paid and unpaid workforce.

The Care Review published its findings and recommendations in a set of five reports, The key report for change is 'The Promise' which sets out an overall view of what the new approach should be to ensure that young people grow up loved, safe, and respected to realise their full potential. The Promise is broken into 5 foundations Voice, Family, Care, Peopleand Scaffolding.
