In 2017 Coram Voice conducted a rapid review of around 80 UK studies that explored care leavers’ own accounts of their experiences and feelings. This is a summary of the key themes and issues that emerged from the review. The quotes used in this review are from the young people interviewed or consulted in the various studies.
We believe young people with direct experience of leaving care are best placed to evaluate and comment on the care system and how it has worked for them. This rapid review sought to place their voices at the forefront of our development work on well-being and care leavers.
