On behalf of the Scottish Government, CELCIS (the Centre for Excellence for Looked After Children in Scotland) commissioned Blake Stevenson to evaluate the Realigning Children's Services (RCS) programme.

The evaluation aimed to improve the effectiveness of RCS by identifying lessons learned, determine the impact of the programme and provide recommendations for its future delivery. While RCS now works with a third tranche of Children’s Planning Partnerships (CPPs) , this evaluation only relates to the five CPPs in Tranches 1 and 2.
