Reflective questions:

What are your assumptions about looked after young people & care leavers, and their pre-care, in-care and post-care experiences in Scotland?

Thinking about the transitions to adulthood and independence for young people leaving care, how do you think these differ from the genral population; what impact can this have on their outcomes?

What is your understanding of the concept of 'corporate parenting' in relation to looked after children, young people and care leavers; and what can you do within your own role or setting to make this meaningful in your daily practice?
