You will grow up loved, safe and respected.
And by 2030, that promise must be kept.

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.
