Name of the individual members:
Jennifer C. Davidson
Center for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland (CELCIS), University of Strathclyde
The establishment of CELCIS, which - based at the University of Strathclyde - is a Scottish Government-funded initiative to improve the lives and strengthen the welfare of all looked after children in Scotland. CELCIS aims to improve the knowledge, skills and qualifications of the child care workforce across the country.
Mission and vision:
We're dedicated to making positive and lasting improvements in the wellbeing of children and young people living in and on the edges of care, and their families, across the whole country, and the globe - children who, through no fault of their own, are not able to enjoy the same positive experiences and outcomes as many of their peers.
In our partnership work with carers, social workers, teachers, nurses, charities, the police, local authorities, the Scottish Government, we work to understand the issues, introduce the best possible practice and develop solutions. What's more, to achieve effective, enduring and positive change across the board, we take an innovative, evidence-based implementation approach.
