Moving Forward: Supporting Care Leaver Transitions
Wed 21 June 2017, 09:30 – 15:30 BST
Care leavers, like most vulnerable student groups, are particularly vulnerable during times of transition; from school on to college, university, or on to a training programme. These are times when there can be uncertainty about entitlements, changes in support received, and possibly living arrangements. The challenges are both emotional, and practical.
This event will help inform practitioners about some of the practical and emotional issues faced by care leavers during these times, in order to enhance the support they can offer the young people they work with. Within this, there will be a particular, but not sole, focus on financial entitlement and money management for care leavers.
This event is aimed primarily at practitioners who support care leavers in their education and training progression post-16.
