Abstract

This is the second in a special series of ‘implementation notes’ developed by CELCIS, with support from corporate parents, to assist in the implementation and enactment of a specific duty (or a set of duties) included in Part 9 (Corporate Parenting) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (the Act). The aims of each implementation note are to: Assist corporate parents in deciding ‘how’ they will meet their ‘corporate parenting’ duties; Identify solutions to the practical challenges faced by corporate parents, associated
with implementing duties ‘in so far as consistent with the proper exercise of their other functions’; Support corporate parents in their efforts to make a positive and meaningful contribution towards improving the lives of looked after children and care leavers.
