Children at Royston Youth Action

Each and Every Child is an initiative that aims to tell a compelling story about children and young people in the care system, transforming the current public narrative and mobilising people at all levels in the community to take action to improve their life chances.

The main aims of Each and Every Child are to:

  • shift public attitudes towards children, young people and their families who are in and around the care system to build improved support for progressive policy and practice implementation
  • engage and inform professionals in the sectors working with children, young people and their families around their communications to strengthen their practice and impact
  • support and equip care experienced people to be at the heart of efforts to develop more consistent and effective communication (informed by this robust research and experience of reframing techniques) in order to mobilise people in communities to take action to improve the life chances of children and young people

In Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the initiative, FrameWorks UK conducted research across Scotland and, in collaboration with people with lived experience and the workforce within the sector, created the Toolkit. Now in Phase 3, the Each and Every Child initiative seeks to support organisations and individuals to use the framing recommendations to help create long lasting, positive change now and in the future, for each and every child.

Each and Every Child is a partnership initiative funded by CELCIS, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, Life Changes Trust, The Robertson Trust, Social Work Scotland and The Scottish Government. The initiative is hosted by The Robertson Trust.
