Planning a route to improved well-being for young people leaving care, 22/11/17 [W]

Today (22 November)  Barnardo’s Cymru is launching a brief calling on Welsh Government to produce a strategy to support the wellbeing of looked after young people aged 11-25, on their journey into adulthood: Time for Change – Planning a route to improved well-being for young people leaving care.

Based on our experience as a provider of fostering services , leaving care services and our broader experience of supporting vulnerable young people, we suggest three areas of practice which we think should be brought together under one strategic approach to support adolescents and young people.

We believe that it would be possible to improve outcomes for our care leavers through a strategy that starts early, at age 11, and addresses the quality and range of support in order to respond to the specific needs of adolescents and young people.
