Improving Outcomes for Looked After Children and Care Leavers

Date: 15 October 2014
Location: London
Organiser: Policy Knowledge

Around 10,000 16-18 year olds leave care every year. For these young people outcomes can often be negative: 34% of care leavers are NEET and in 2012 37% of looked after children achieved 5 A*-C GCSEs compared with 80% of non-looked after children. Only 6% of care leavers go into Higher Education compared to 23% of their peers aged 18.

The government hopes to address these issues through their Care Leaver Strategy. Launched in October 2013 it sets out a clear vision to support those in care and those leaving care to reach their aspirations. It is hoped that through more simple and integrated services care leavers will be treated with respect and dignity.

This important briefing event will examine and explore and debate and discuss the latest policy and practice designed to support those in and leaving care.
