Each and Every Child Initiative – Management Group roles (2 roles, paid)
The Each and Every Child Initiative is a partnership project between CELCIS, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Life Changes Trust, The Robertson Trust, Scottish Government and Social Work Scotland, and will be hosted by The Robertson Trust. These partners will make up the Management Group. In addition, in order to make sure the voice of lived experience can influence the strategic direction of Each and Every Child, the partners intend to recruit two care experienced individuals to join the Management Group.
