People who are Care Experienced
Along with many other Government funded bodies, Renfrewshire Council has a Corporate Parenting role for people who are Care Experienced. There has been significant research carried out showing that outcomes are often poorer for this group due to circumstances such as disrupted education and Post Traumatic Stress. At Invest in Renfrewshire, we work a range of partners in Social Work, Family Firm, SDS and Who Cares Scotland? to identify clients and pathways to enable them to progress. We also work together to try to identify the right opportunity for them at the right time in their lives to move into sustained employment.
Our definition of Care Experienced includes people who are/have been Looked After and Accommodated, Looked After at Home, in Foster Care or in Kinship Care.
