Care and Permanence Planning for Looked After Children in Scotland: Scottish Government Response, 21/06/11 [S]

The Scottish Government has published its response to the Care and Permanence Planning report prepared by the Scottish Children's Reporter Administration.

The report prepared by SCRA found that, for the majority of children, it took more than two years from their first involvement with services to achieve permanence through Adoption or a Parental Responsibilities Order. The shortest time was 12.5 months and the longest 10 years and 10 months.

The response details actions that will be taken following this report including training, promoting good practice, commissioning evaluation, reviewing policies and providing support.
