Developing Employment Opportunities for Care Leavers
Bilson, Andy; Price, Joanna; Stanley, Nicky
Children & Society, v25 n5 p382-393 Sep 2011
This article describes an action research project carried out in North West England that aimed to assist Children's Services Departments and Care Trusts in developing their strategies for supporting care leavers into employment and training. The study found a range of models and approaches that can be utilised to develop local and regional partnerships offering employment and training opportunities designed to meet the needs of care leavers. Relevant questions about the extent to which such opportunities should be ring-fenced or targeted on particular fields of employment are identified.
