Care Leavers' Association

An ever growing union of care leavers


Welcome to The Care Leavers' Association Website.

Have a look around. If you were in care as a child then why not join us? If you'd like to contact people that you were in care with then why not join CareleaversReunited as well? Feel free to tell us your ideas or come to our meetings. We focus on many issues that are relevant to care leavers of all ages. Explore our website to find out more. Full membership is open to anyone aged 18 or over who spent all or part of their childhood in care (we have members aged from age 18 to over 80). If you support us but were not in care you can become an associate member. See our 'Get Involved' pages.

Historical Abuse PDF Print E-mail

The Scottish Government has announced a statutory public inquiry into the historical sex abuse of children in care. Education Secretary Angel Constance said it would have powers to force witnesses to give evidence. This is in stark contrast to the farcical happenings at the Home Office Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse. The CLA is part of a Survivors Alliance group and we will continue to constructively engage with the Home Office both directly and through the alliance.
