Corporate Parenting Plan 2017-2020

Our shared vision is for all children and young people to have the best start in life and for Tayside to be the best place in Scotland to grow up.

As Corporate Parents in Perth and Kinross we have high aspirations and ambitions for our children and young people who are looked after or who have care experience. We recognise that the outcomes for young people who have experienced care often fall short of their peers. Through committed and collective leadership, strong collaboration and partnership working we will strive to close outcomes gaps and to achieve significant improvements in the life chances for care experienced children and young people.

The Corporate Parenting Plan for Perth and Kinross has been developed in line with the Tayside Plan for Children, Young People and Families 2017-2020.

The Tayside Plan for Children, Young People and Families (The Tayside Plan) is the first joint plan to be produced by the three Community Planning areas of Angus, Dundee and Perth and Kinross. It reflects shared leadership towards multi-agency cross-border collaboration in the planning, management, commissioning, delivery, evaluation and improvement of services to children, young people and families. It also reflects a shared and longstanding commitment to implementing Getting It Right for Every Child (GIRFEC) and an absolute focus on improving outcomes for all children, young people and families, regardless of their circumstances.

The Tayside Plan states that a Corporate Parenting Strategy will be developed, which pro-actively and systematically addresses the needs of Looked After Children and Care Leavers.
