Staf (Scottish Throughcare and Aftercare Forum) is Scotland’s national membership organisation for all of those involved in the lives of young people leaving care. Our vision is that the wellbeing and success of young people leaving care across Scotland is indistinguishable from that of theirs peers in the general population. Together we can make that happen.

The REAL Toolkit

The REAL Toolkit – Relationships, Empathy and Love The toolkit will be guide for young people who are leaving care and importantly, it will also be guidance for those working in care on how to promote relationships. Our vision is that every young person in care and leaving care will have positive meaningful relationships. Funded by The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
