Abstract

The National Residential Child Care Initiative (NRCCI) was set up in the summer of 2008 when the Scottish Government and COSLA jointly commissioned the Scottish Institute for Residential Child Care (SIRCC) to undertake a review of the context of residential child care services and make recommendations for change. The aim was to make residential care the first and best placement of choice for those children whose needs it serves. Three working groups were established to undertake work with respect to ‘matching resources to needs’, ‘workforce skills’, and ‘commissioning services’. This report represents the key results of the working group on commissioning services. The report draws on: • The experience and knowledge of working group members, • Relevant literature and policy documents, • The results of the NRCCI’s stakeholder consultations with young people and professionals and comments submitted to the NRCCI web-site.
