SCRA as a Corporate Parent
On 1 April 2015 we became a proud Corporate Parent.
By law (the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014) Corporate Parents must carry out special responsibilities. We also have a moral duty to provide the best possible support and care we can to the children and young people we are involved with.
SCRA’s Corporate Parenting duties are:
to be alert to matters which might adversely affect the wellbeing of looked after children and young people.
to assess the needs of looked after children and young people for services and support they provide.
to promote the interests of looked after children and young people.
to provide opportunities for looked after children and young people to participate in activities designed to promote their wellbeing.
- to take action appropriate to ensure looked after children and young people access these opportunities and make use of our services and support.
- to take any other action considered appropriate to improve organisational functions to meet the needs of looked after children and young people.

To support the Corporate Parenting Plan, we have a website aimed at young people.
The website – www.mycorporateparents.co.uk – is a joint initiative with Children’s Hearings Scotland.
The site provides young people with a more interactive version of our corporate parenting commitments and activities.
