I'm delighted to have been asked to write this editorial. This is a special issue of the Journal, published to coincide with and signify the importance of our annual Scottish Institute of Residential Child Care (SIRCC) conference. The conference is now in its 19th year and is a central part of the residential child care calendar in Scotland and internationally. It's been an absolute honour to chair the SIRCC committee and conference over the last six years. I work with such wonderful people who talk and practice all things residential child care every day. It's a conference that places significant emphasis on grass roots practice, latest evidence, international contexts, and, most importantly, supportively challenges us all to keep pushing for the absolute best for children and young people living in residential care. It's about the stories, the work, and the learning of the people who are at the heart of this.
