Measuring Success

8.1 There are many factors which influence the lives of children and young people and understanding how successful the support has been is often assessed differently. There are opportunities for agencies across Scotland to move towards a more consistent language around the needs of our children and young people. This must, ultimately, provide for better outcomes and improved life chances for all children and young people in Scotland. Importantly, this will also support the development of our work as a Corporate Parent to support looked after children and care leavers.
