The Promise Scotland steps in to lead change projects where gaps exist in the change that’s currently happening.

Current Change Projects

Doing data differently

Doing Data Differently is about seeing the whole picture of what matters to children and families.


Other current change projects

The Promise in Places

The Promise in Places will focus on holistic change within specific local areas.

It will explore the potential for piloting whole system change in these places, with the aim of keeping the promise in its entirety.

This exploration will aim to draw on existing knowledge, and to provide useful learning for communities across all of Scotland.

Projects on behalf of Scottish Government

We continue to work on projects specifically on behalf of Scottish Government.

These include:

  • Scoping a blueprint for information held by care experienced people.
  • Recommending changes to the "care system’s" governance and accountability landscape. This will report by June 2024.
