Still A Bairn? Throughcare & Aftercare Services In Scotland : Final Report To The Scottish Executive
The University of York was commissioned by the Scottish Executive to undertake a two-year study of the way local authorities are discharging their duties and powers under the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 to promote throughcare and aftercare for looked after young people. This final report is based on the findings of data from the national postal survey of thirty-one Scottish local authorities and other agencies involved in the provision of throughcare and aftercare.
It also draws upon information gathered from young people and their support workers at two points in time to provide an insight into what it means to move on from care in Scotland and what works in promoting positive outcomes.
