Who Cares Scotland
Who Cares? Scotland is a national voluntary organisation, working with care experienced young people and care leavers across Scotland.
Who Cares? Scotland was established in 1978 and we operated on an entirely voluntary basis for the next decade until 1988. During this time, ‘Supportive adults’, such as social workers, gave up their time to enable Who Cares? Scotland to work with local groups of care experienced young people.
In 1979 the first ever Gathering of care experienced young people in Musselburgh. This saw around 90 young people attend and share their views on their care experience with each other. They spoke about how involved they felt in decisions made about their lives, the level of support that they received and life after care. Issues that still remain too common to Scotland’s care experienced population.See more
