Oversight Board

The Promise Oversight Board is critical to ensuring that the Promise made to Scotland's children and families is kept. 

The Oversight Board will use The Plan to monitor the progress organisations make individually, and the progress Scotland makes collectively towards The Promise's key priorities to make sure Scotland will #KeepThePromise.

The Oversight Board will report to the care community and publicly on the progress made and will use its networks, relationships and governance structure to provide support and guidance wherever necessary.

It will hold Scotland to account.
