Staf is Scotland’s membership organisation for all those supporting young people leaving care. Our vision is that the wellbeing and success of young people leaving care in Scotland is indistinguishable from that of their peers in the general population. We work to achieve this guided by our values: we listen, we care, we love. Our members belong to a wide variety or organisations from local authorities to local and national third sector charities and corporate parents. We host bi-monthly focus groups and forums to allow the workforce to share best practice and create a network of change and navigate the policy and practice developments following the Independent Care Review. We work directly with care leavers across a variety of projects including The Real Toolkit, an online resource created by and for care leavers and the workforce, Shannon's Box, Youth Justice Voices and the Care Leavers Forum, all of which seek to amplify their voice and facilitate change with trauma informed and relationship and rights-based practice at the heart of what we do. Working with members and care leavers we seek to influence policy at a national and local level and do all we can to ensure that young people leaving care have the best outcomes in life.
