Improving employment outcomes for care leavers.
Reed in Partnership has launched a new report From Care to
Independence. The research focuses on the employment
outcomes of young people leaving the care system.
From Care to Independence sets out a case for the Work
Programme, the government's new welfare to work initiative, to
support care leavers to find sustainable employment.
The current statistics show that young people leaving care are
more than twice as likely to end up not in education, employment or
training at the age of 19.
