Welcome to SAIA - Attachment Matters for All
SAIA aims to make sure that everyone understands the fundamental importance of attachment relationships throughout life by:
- Providing training and consultancy in attachment and trauma to practitioners, parents and carers
- Providing information through social media, conferences, events, newsletters and educational resources
Scottish Attachment in Action joins the voice of the Care Review and the Scottish Government. Scotland must love its families and become lifelong good parents. #keepthepromise
The Care Review has produced seven main reports:
The Promise reflects what over 5,500 care experienced children and adults, families and the paid and unpaid workforce told the Care Review in the hope that Scotland is listening. It will tell Scotland what it must do to make sure its most vulnerable children feel loved and have the childhood they deserve. See also the Pinky Promise.
The Plan explains how this change must happen.
The Money and Follow the Money explain how Scotland can invest better in its children and families.
The Rules demonstrates the current legislative framework and how it must change to achieve The Promise.
And a THANK YOU to the army of thousand who have contributed to the Care Review.
