The Independent Care Review concluded in 2020 and led to the creation of The Promise. Corra’s CEO Fiona Duncan chaired the Independent Review and was then invited to establish The Promise Oversight Board, set-up and chair the Promise Scotland. As part of Corra’s strong commitment to supporting Scotland to #KeepThePromise, our Trustees have worked closely with the Scottish Government as the needs of this crucial work have evolved.
The Promise Scotland is now moving into a new phase, with the appointment of its first Chief Executive and non-executive directors. During the coming three years Fiona will act as an Independent Strategic Advisor on work to #KeepThePromise. At the same time, she will support delivery of Corra’s bold ten-year strategy (2020-30) through a one-day-per-week Strategic Director role. Carolyn Sawers will continue to act as Chief Executive, as she has done since April 2021.
