This is the fourth in a special series of 'implementation notes' developed by CELCIS, with support from corporate parents, to assist in the implementation and enactment of a specific duty (or a set of duties) included in Part 9 (Corporate Parenting) of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (the Act). The aims of each implementation note are to: Assist corporate parents in deciding 'how' they will meet their 'corporate parenting' duties. Identify solutions to the practical challenges faced by corporate parents, associated with implementing duties 'in so far as is consistent with the proper exercise of their other functions'. Support corporate parents in their efforts to make a positive and meaningful contribution towards improving the lives of looked after children and care leavers.
