Adoption Motion, 31/05/11 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 31 May 2011 by Richard Simpson (Lab) on the publication of Go Away People, the third such publication since 2003 by Post Adoption Central Support.

The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament welcomes the publication of Go Away People, the third such publication since 2003 by Post Adoption Central Support (PACS), an organisation of parents, social workers and other professionals involved in adoption and long-term foster care; considers that the booklet recognises the role, which it considers crucial, that attachment and attachment problems play in all children’s development; considers that these problems can go unrecognised in all children but particularly in those children who have been adopted; recognises the contribution made by the PACS publication of a leaflet for schools, Stop Wasting My Time, which contains case studies of pupils with attachment issues in schools, with special reference to looked-after and adopted children, and hopes that all teachers will be trained in recognising the importance of attachment issues for all children.
