About the Independent Care Review

The Independent Care Review will identify and deliver lasting change in the care system and leave a legacy that will transform the wellbeing of children and young people across Scotland.  It is a task that cannot be achieved without listening to and taking account of the views of a whole host of people and organisations.  Understanding the needs and experience of people who are care experienced is at the very heart of the Care Review and it is essential to making change.  You will have a unique opportunity to be involved in the development of a National Care Review which is ground breaking and innovative.

Applications from people with care experience are particularly welcomed as are secondments.  

Formal interviews for this post will be held on 18 February 2019.

Informal enquiries about the post can be directed to Michelle Nairn, Quality Assurance and Planning Lead (michelle.nairn@strath.ac.uk (after 3rd January 2019).
