Care leavers’ transitions to adulthood

According to a report by the National Audit Office, the system for supporting young people leaving foster or residential care in England to live successful independent lives is not working effectively.

“Addressing the poor life outcomes of young people leaving care is a longstanding problem. The cost of their not moving into adulthood successfully is high. The government has made a commitment to improve the support for these young people but the outcomes for many have been deteriorating over the last seven years.
