Plan 21-24 , Scotland’s first plan for change, says that:

“The governance landscape around the various Boards, networks and groups that sit around the ‘care system’ will be rationalised to enable effective and accountable shared working around the lives of children and families.” (p.38, Plan 21-24)

This evidence review will focus on research about:

  • different aspects of – and approaches to – governance and accountability,
  • what these different aspects and approaches entail, and, crucially,
  • what evidence exists around the extent that different approaches align with the promise.

This will enable a focus on both:

  • collective accountability, and
  • listening that is built into every stage of decision making.

“The governance landscape around the various Boards, networks and groups that sit around the ‘care system’ will be rationalised to enable effective and accountable shared working around the lives of children and families.” (p.38, Plan 21-24)

The Promise Scotland has created a map of public sector organisations to show which are accountable for which parts of 'the care system.'

To accompany this, it's now commissioning a parallel piece of work to:

  • understand different forms and aspects of governance, and
  • how these support or detract from collective accountability.

This review will form part of an evidence base that will support a shift to a new approach to governance and accountability, which is:

  • capable of enabling shared working which is effective, and
  • capable of enabling shared working which is accountable.

The evidence review will examine:

It aims to make sure the learning and impact from previous reviews is maximised, looking across multiple sectors to collate:

  • findings,
  • recommendations, and
  • subsequent actions taken or outstanding.

And it will continue to apply the broad lens that was at the heart of the Independent Care Review: looking beyond the boundaries of organisations and disciplines, to capture and act on what matters to children and families.

The Promise Scotland is seeking support to model cost options for work laid out by the Hearing Systems Working Group.

This is needed to provide clarity about the cost base associated with:

  • changes needed to implement the promise, and
  • changes needed to implement the broader conclusions of the Independent Care Review.

It includes work undertaken through Human and Economic Cost Modelling and the Follow the Money Report.
