Each and Every Child and The Robertson Trust are looking for a Practice & Participation Coordinator to join our team. The Each and Every Child initiative is a programme of work which 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.

  • support and equip people with experience of care to be at the heart of efforts to develop more consistent and effective communication to mobilise people in communities to take action to improve the life chances of children and young people

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