What do love and relationships mean for children and young people who have care experience?
This was the question that resulted in the Love InC project, a partnership consisting of Aberlour, Includem, The Care Inspectorate and CELCIS.
With funding from The Life Changes Trust Workforce Development Initiative, Love Inc has now published its final report which outlines their work, findings, and key messages over the past three years. It narrates the journey of the partnership, reflects learning, and has some important messages for corporate parents in Scotland. The project has explored how can we ensure that loving relationships are able to flourish for children and young people who experience care.
The Love InC name was suggested by a care experienced young person and sums up just what the partnership is about – love in the care system for children and young people.
The thinking and approach of Love InC chimes with the findings and messages of the Promise and the five foundations of voice, family, care, people, and scaffolding are integrated throughout the work and the findings.
