Author: Debbie Nolan, Kenny McGhee

Report from the Making Connections workshop facilitated by CELCIS and CYCJ , to support the implementation of the agenda for change, under the Youth and Criminal Justice section of the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant.

The workshop has a particular emphasis on the protocol to support identification and provided an opportunity to explore current practice in identifying and supporting care leavers; share good practice examples. Participants also reflected on any actions needed by individuals and organisations to improve practice, as well as to begin thinking about how these could be implemented.
