Staf Summit,

The theme of the Summit is on improving the health and wellbeing outcomes for Scotland's care experienced young people. We know from conversations in our forums and events, feedback from young people and what was said during the Independent Care Review, and more recently as part of the 100 Days of Listening, that the link between health and social work is inextricable and without collaboration between all those who support young people to thrive, for many care experienced young people the health inequalities they face will continue. 


Temporary cover for period: March 2024 – August 2024 (6 months) contract


3200 – 3500€ gross monthly salary depending on experience

Sian Hopkins - Children and Young People Now,

The Children’s Homes Association (CHA) has released the trailer for its series of short documentary films in a bid to “reset the narrative” around residential care for children.

Udita Iyengar, Jessica Heller-Bhatt,

This perspective piece considers the impact on infant and perinatal health in the context of COVID-19 with particular emphasis on relational dynamics and attachment assessments, using a case study of a foster carer and her child in an out-of-home-care placement. Understanding these dynamics is crucial for safeguarding the well-being of both caregivers and vulnerable children during this challenging time.

Aine Fox - The Independent,

Emotional scars associated with growing up in care are passed down through generations, according to a UK-first study.

Hayley Alderson, Carrie Harrop ,

This chapter identifies some (but not all) of the common adversities that care-experienced young people often face living in England inclusive of changes in accommodation and placement instability, insecure relationships, poor mental health, disrupted education, substance misuse, and poverty in order to help educators understand the myriad of life challenges facing those with care experience.

Karin Goodwin - The Ferret,

Scottish councils have given up to £200m to private firms to provide residential care for children and young people, despite promising to move away from the practice four years ago.

Nathan Hyde - The Yorkshire Post,

The head of a charity supporting children in care said some are being sent to stay in boats, caravans and tents because the system is “completely overwhelmed”.

Emmanuelle Toussaint, Agnès Florin, Jean-Michel Galharret,

Although it is a major issue, the health of children and adolescents in care is still mainly explored on the basis of information provided by adults in French studies. This study therefore aims to make up for the lack of studies integrating the young people’s own point of view and to explore certain aspects of health, as reported by the children and adolescents themselves, by comparing the health of children in care with that of children in the general population.


The first-ever National Kinship Care Strategy has been published. This session aims to explore the implications of the strategy on social work with kinship families and the impact it has on local authority planning, practice and workforce. The panel event will take place online via zoom on Tuesday 30th January 11.30am – 1.30pm.
