Read One Parent Families Scotland’s report, ‘Poverty-proofing for families in or on the edges of care’, commissioned by The Promise Scotland.
- Satwat Rehman, OPFS Chief Executive
This report is based on research by OPFS with Child Poverty Action Group. It explores what happens to family finances when a child enters the care system in Scotland and this how affects family reunification. The report is based on interviews with practitioners and parents who have come into contact with the care system. It contains series of short-term and long-term recommendations to mitigate against the negative consequences for families when a child is taken into care.
