The focus for this publication is an ambitious improvement in young people’s experience of throughcare and aftercare services; this focus coincides with the passing of the Children and Young People Bill through Parliament. As you may know, the Bill contains important proposals to increase care leavers’ experience of meaningful support and we discuss these proposals throughout this issue. You can read the detail of the main elements of the new legislation and how the changes contained in the Bill will affect children and young people who are looked after later in the magazine. Kenny McGhee is our Throughcare and Aftercare Service Consultant who is leading our work in this area, and he will tell you more about his engagement with local authorities throughout Scotland and the partnership work going on with the Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum (STAF). Examples of the work being done to improve the outcomes for our care leavers in Scotland show innovative partnerships and a shared vision to continually improve and share good practice across the country.
