We want to thank you for everything you have done over the past few months to ensure that our young people receive the care and love they deserve during this challenging time.

This crisis has shone a new light on the issues children and young people in and leaving care face but we also know that there’s some great work continuing, particularly around relationship-based and trauma-informed practice. That’s why we’re launching a new campaign to highlight and document your good practice.

Starting on Monday 15 June we’re asking you and your organisation to share examples of good practice during COVID-19 – with blogs, pictures and videos – on Twitter using the hashtag #WeLove.

If you’re not able to join in on Twitter, please send your examples to us (by emailing [email protected]) and we can share from our own channels. We will take all of these examples to the Scottish Government and record them to ensure we can build back better at the end of this crisis.

We know that a number of other organisations are also looking at collating best practice and we’ll be in touch with them individually to connect our work. If you think we should be connecting with your organisation on this then please get in touch.

We know that every day you are living Staf’s values in your support for children and young people – we listen, we care, we love.

Let’s support each other to share this good practice. 

How you can help: 

  • From Monday 15 June, share your examples of best practice stories, pictures and videos on Twitter with the hashtag #WeLove.
  • Share your best practice examples with us by emailing them to [email protected] 
  • Get in touch with us if you think we can work together with your organisation to share best practice.
