Clackmannanshire Council has pledged that we will work to keep The Promise, putting children and families at the heart of what we do so that every child grows up loved, safe and respected, and able to realise their full potential.
The Promise is a Scotland wide blueprint to deliver on the recommendations of the National Independent Care Review, and is based on five key foundations:
Clackmannanshire’s Promise Cross Party group has been established and is responsible for ensuring Keeping The Promise is firmly in sight and remains a key priority in achieving real change for our care experienced people.
The Clackmannanshire Children and Young People’s Partnership is delivering on identified local commitments and actions through Keeping Our Promise - the Children’s Services Plan 2021-2024.
Local priority actions are structured around the five Promise priorities:
The Clackmannanshire Alliance is piloting the Human and Economic Cost Modelling (HECM) approach with support from The Promise Scotland.
Care experienced young people and their carers have engaged in a participatory opportunity with The Promise Design School to support the development of a Participation Network to improve current collaboration and participatory opportunities.
The Corporate Sponsor Pledge will be signed by members of the Council's senior leadership group and Alliance partners to show their commitment to The Promise and reframing language used within care.
Reports on progress are submitted to the People Committee.
