The majority of young people leaving care are teenagers. The teenage years are developmentally and socially turbulent even within the most secure of backgrounds. Supporting Young People Leaving Care provides professional insight and guidance on the very specific circumstances facing looked after children moving on to the next stage of their independence.
In our society, which is becoming increasingly more complicated in terms of roles, social norms, relationships and identity (including those online), it can be tremendously difficult for a young person to find a place to start their adult, independent life in the world. Many young people who have lived in different care settings with attachment breaks in their history will find it hard to trust and attach to adults in new situations such as the work place. The Supporting Young People Leaving Care course will ensure that you know what support is available to young people leaving care and how best to ensure a seamless transition.
