Still Caring? Supporting Care Leavers in Scotland

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This briefing paper outlines the legal, policy and practice positions for working with care leavers before going on to situate the importance of lived experiences of leaving care by young people and adult care leavers. We consider the gaps in provisions and the needs of care leavers up to the age of 25 as this is the age group suggested in the new Bill. We propose that there is an extension in legislation, policy and practice to support care leavers financially, practically and emotionally up to the age of 25 should they wish to receive this support.
