What is The Promise?

Back in 2016, Scotland's First Minister promised care experienced people that Scotland would do better to give all young people in Scotland the childhood they deserve. This led to the Care Review, which over 3 years, listened to the voices of over 5,500 children, young people and adults who had lived in care.

The Care Review in turn led to The Promise, a longstanding commitment and 10 year plan to providing loving, caring and supportive foster homes to children and young people throughout their childhood and into their adult lives. The logo of The Promise below has been designed to outline the five foundations of The Promise.

Here at FCA Scotland, we have pledged to #KeepThePromise and are working hard to ensure that every child in our care grows up loved, safe, respected and able to realise their full potential. As part of this, we understand how important it is for the children and young people in our care to have their voices heard.

We will always include our young people in helping us plan any changes to FCA Scotland through planning our event calendar, designing new forms and processes, and asking for your feedback in surveys and participation groups.

Get in touch...

We will always let you know about any upcoming events for young people, but if you would like to know more about The Promise, or how you can get involved with any participation opportunities then you can speak to your foster carer, a member of the Children and Young People's Support Team or you can contact FCA Scotland's Service Lead for The Promise, Roxanne Little on 0141 646 1400.
