Throughcare and aftercare

Taking those big steps into adulthood and independent living cannot be rushed for looked after young people.

We aim to make marked improvements in the outcomes of looked after children in all of our work, and our approach is no different for care leavers. Our throughcare and aftercare work aims to increase understanding that leaving care is a life event for looked after young people, not just a bureaucratic exercise. We're working with multi-agency partners to design effective systems which reflect the milestone that is leaving care and which provide ongoing support for care leavers for as long as they need it.
