    Abstract

    We welcome the opportunity to respond to this consultation. CELCIS is the Centre for Excellence for Looked after Children in Scotland based at the University of Strathclyde. The role of the Care Inspectorate is pivotal in improving services for children and young people. We welcome the recognition of improving outcomes for the most vulnerable children and young people in society and providing a framework connecting internal and external evaluation. The specific attention on looked after children and care leavers demonstrated through illustrations is valuable given the vital role of Community Planning Partnerships in coordinating quality services for this group. We highlight the strength of Quality Indicators in assessing strategic commissioning, staff development and meaningful participation of children, young people and families.
