How was the promise made?
Scotland made its promise following the Independent Care Review, which made clear its current "care system" wasn't working.
Who supports Scotland to keep it?
The Promise Scotland exists to support people and organisations across Scotland to keep the promise.
And who makes sure it's kept?
The Promise Oversight Board check if enough's happening to #KeepThePromise— and holds organisations to account if it isn't.
The Promise Scotland sends out a newsletter once every two months which highlights:
- the latest news from The Promise Scotland,
- The Promise Scotland’s work as it supports efforts to #KeepThePromise,
- stories of change taking place across Scotland as work to #KeepThePromise takes place.
