Forestry and Land Scotland, as an executive agency of the Scottish Government and under Part 9 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, is a Corporate Parent.

Statutory Guidance from the Scottish Government sets out the definition of Corporate Parenting as:

An Organisation’s performance of actions necessary to uphold the rights and secure the wellbeing of a looked after child or care leaver, and through which physical, emotional, spiritual, social and educational development is promoted.

We are currently in the process of developing an agency-specific Corporate Parenting Policy and Action Plan that will set out how Forestry and Land Scotland will deliver on its obligations as a Corporate Parent.

You can find out more about Corporate Parenting and what it means to be a Corporate Parent on the Who Cares? Scotland website. Who Cares? Scotland are a National voluntary organisation who work with Care Experienced Young People and Care Leavers across Scotland.
