Oversight Board Recruitment

The Oversight Board is a key component in the work of change. Chaired by Fiona Duncan, it will meet for the first time in January 2021.  At least 50% of its membership will have lived experience of care.

It will hold Scotland to account.

It will recognize that there are both national and local bridges and barriers to change which are of critical importance to the lives of children and families.

Recruitment is now underway for Oversight Board members.

The recruitment for the Board is driven by values. The Promise needs people who are: 

  • Committed to realising the vision of the Care Review. 
  • Determined to support change.
  • Brave with a willingness to hold those with responsibility to account
  • Dynamic and flexible 
  • Approachable
  • Compassionate with a willingness and ability to listen carefully to alternative perspectives.

The Promise team ran three webinars about the role, responsibility and make-up of the Oversight Board. These sessions covered the recruitment process and how members will be supported as well as the work they will do. A recording and the slides from the webinar are available on our Resources page.
