Sandra Paterson, former Head of Children's Services at North Ayrshire Council, is to head up a Scotland-wide review of Foster Care.

The review will be carried out by the LACSIG Foster Care Hub, building on 'Moving Forward in Kinship and Foster Care' to encourage consistent quality and appropriate provision of foster care in Scotland.

The Looked After Children Strategic Implementation Group (LACSIG) exists to facilitate change in the way organisations and services work for looked after children and young people in Scotland. It aims to ensure that public care is a positive experience that improves long-term outcomes.
