Kinship Care Written Answer, 28/10/14 [S]

Written Answer given in response to Jayne Baxter's (Lab) question asking the Scottish Government  further to the answer to question S4W-19942 by Aileen Campbell on 7 March 2014, when it will publish the findings of its financial review of kinship care and what the reason is for any delay.

The Minister For Children and Young People, Aileen Campbell, replied that the findings of the financial review have been delayed in light of the ongoing investigation by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission in Scotland into local authorities’ policies and payment of allowances to support looked after children in kinship and foster care.

The Minister met with Councillor Chapman on 14 October 2014 to discuss this matter. We now plan to reconvene the kinship care financial review group with a view to completing the review and publishing our findings as soon as possible.

For the full answer to this and other questions see the Scottish Parliament Written Answer Report 28 October 2014 which is available from the Scottish Parliament website.
