Analysis from the largest survey of care leavers’ well-being in England has shown significant differences in the experience of care leavers between local authorities.

Coram Voice in collaboration with the Rees Centre have published a report looking at how care leavers feel about their lives. Findings from a survey of 1,804 care leavers, collected in 21 English local authorities between 2017 and 2019, include: the majority of care leavers had moderate to high well-being, but 30% had low well-being; 24% of care leavers reported a disability or long-term health problem, against 14% of 16- to 24-year-olds in the general population; and care leavers also reported higher levels of loneliness (22%), high anxiety (33%) and feeling unsafe where they live (16%).
