Peter Appleton,

A valuable resource for practitioners, researchers and educators, this book puts forward a powerful case to think more broadly and flexibly about transition planning with care-leavers, placing the voices of young people at its heart. This book grew out of qualitative research interviews held with a small and diverse sample of young adults who were in the process of transitioning from out-of-home care (foster care, kinship care, or residential care) in London, England.

This study examined 18 months of published Child Safeguarding Practice Reviews across England to identify the intersecting characteristics, vulnerabilities, harm types, indicators and issues with formal guardianship (safeguarding by carers, schools, local authorities, police and health professionals). Results revealed that children were missing, vulnerable, harmed and showed indicators of exploitation in numerous and intersecting ways.

Staf Summit,

The theme of the Summit is on improving the health and wellbeing outcomes for Scotland's care experienced young people. We know from conversations in our forums and events, feedback from young people and what was said during the Independent Care Review, and more recently as part of the 100 Days of Listening, that the link between health and social work is inextricable and without collaboration between all those who support young people to thrive, for many care experienced young people the health inequalities they face will continue.
