Getting Ready Project Resources

The Getting Ready project complements the current Welsh Government When I am Ready scheme, providing a more intensive intervention which seeks to echo the support and guidance that non-looked after young people receive within a family setting. This will seek to address some of the inequalities faced by the care-experienced population when transitioning from care.

One aspect of the project is the creation and provision of a suite of resources to enhance care experienced young people’s knowledge and understanding of their rights and entitlements when planning to leave care. These resources can be used by young people and professionals to provide support for young people to safely transition from care, reducing the risk of homelessness and achieving housing stability amongst care leavers.

The resources specifically focus on building young people’s financial capability, in line with the core themes outlined in the Welsh Government’s Financial Inclusion Strategy document:

1. Access to affordable credit and financial services;
2. Access to financial information, including debt advice; and
3. Building financial understanding and capability.

In this unprecedented time where many parts of the population are struggling to maintain their physical, mental and financial wellbeing, Children in Wales have reviewed the resources being created and are extracting key information from them to publish a suite of mini resources for young people. These mini resources tackle some of the priority issues for care experienced young people, to ensure they have the information they need to cope.

Furthermore Children in Wales has recognised the need for care experienced young people to have access to relevant, reliable and current information about key topics, at a time when information available is changing daily. As part of the Getting Ready project, Children in Wales are producing an online tool, using padlet, that will provide information on a wide variety of topics. This information will be updated regularly.
