Corporate Parenting

As part of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014, Bòrd na Gàidhlig has now legally been designated as a Corporate Parent. This means that we now have statutory duties to fulfil with regard to looked after children and young people (LACYP) and care leavers. The  responsibility for fulfilling these duties lies across the organisation, although ultimate responsibility lies with the Board and our Senior Management Team.
