Permanence Workstream

The Permanence Workstream aims to take forward a review of the legislation surrounding permanence proceedings and to consider the impact of the SCRA permanence research. In doing so, it will look at areas of good practice and procedure while also identifying areas where the process could be more efficient in an effort to reduce drift and delay in the permanence process.

The Workstream is comprised of members from many agencies involved in the permanence process; including the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service, Scottish Children’s Reporter Administration, Children’s Hearings Scotland, the SOLAR Social Work Legal Officers’ Group, Social Work Scotland and private family law solicitors.

CHAIR: Led by the Scottish Government
