We’re from Social Finance, a non-profit organisation that works to make social change sustainable. We’re working with local authorities across the UK to create more effective support for care leavers, and have created an outcomes framework which could help authorities better understand and improve their care leavers’ outcomes.
If you’re aged 15-25 and a care leaver, or are about to leave care in the next few years, we would love to meet with you and hear from you. You are the best person to tell us what leaving care well should look like, and what the outcomes framework should include if it is to enable local authorities to give young people like you the support that they need. Everyone is different, and every opinion matters to us because we want to create something that’s relevant for as many care leavers as possible.
There will be group activities and discussions, and as well as plenty of food and snacks, we'll be providing vouchers for high street shops to thank you for your time. If there is anything more we can do to support your attendance, such as providing vouchers for childcare or travel expenses, please get in touch with Cheriel Neo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
