This online course covers all aspects of support for young people leaving care. We explain the statutory and legal frameworks that apply and the importance of a planned approach to maximise positive outcomes.
We evaluate their emotional responses to leaving care and how you can support them to make their own decisions about when to leave and where they will live. Living independently has many challenges. We explore how you can educate, support and prepare them for leaving the residential care setting and where they can access sources of information and advice.
We explore why they may visit the care setting after they have left and how you can continue to support them in the future. We provide lots of information and links to organisations that can provide information and sources of support for young people leaving care and there are videos to watch along the way.
