We are pledging our support to Stand Up For Siblings 28 March 2018Earlier this month, Stand Up For Siblings held a launch event to kick off the Stand Up For Siblings movement. Over 80 people attended the event at which they were asked to pledge their support to Stand Up For Siblings and give a commitment to what they and/or their organisation can do to help. Children’s Hearings Scotland (CHS) Board member Beth-Anne Logan was at the event. Beth-Anne pledged: According to Stand Up For Siblings, it is not currently known how many children in care in Scotland also have siblings in care, and how many are living apart. Stand Up For Siblings is a collaboration between child welfare, children’s rights and legal organisations and academics within Scotland. These organisations believe more can be done to work together to influence policy and practice that will protect the rights and promote the wellbeing of siblings. The CHS community is getting behind the movement with pledges of support from our National Convener Boyd McAdam, and Deputy Chief Executive Elliot Jackson.
