Corporate Parenting

What's corporate parenting?

Corporate parenting refers to our responsibility to look after care experienced young people.

The Scottish Government described a good corporate parent as one that 'will want the best outcomes for their looked after children, accept responsibility for them, and make their needs a priority.' In 2014 they passed a law that assigned this responsibility to certain organisations. This includes all staff working for local councils, education, police and many more. These organisations must write and publish a plan to show how they will be the best corporate parents they can be.
