Access to care records

Ask for information about care leavers

If you were in care or you were looked after or boarded out in Edinburgh as a child, you have the right to see information that was collected about you.

We understand that accessing this type of information can be difficult and it is a good idea to be supported through the process. To help with this, we provide support for people accessing their care records. Use of the service is voluntary and free.

Use the subject access process to request your information.
