Detail

The Right2BCared4 pilot began in October 2007 in 11 local authorities and is based on the principles that young people:

  • should not be expected to leave care until they are 18 years old
  • should have a greater say in the decision-making process preceding their exit from care
  • should be properly prepared for living independently

The most important aspect to this pilot is that the transition from care to independence should be planned and properly managed, that young people should be consulted about their wishes and feelings, and that they should have access to independent advocacy.

The interim report presents findings from a mapping exercise and focus groups undertaken between January and June 2009 with social workers, personal advisers and other professionals from each of the pilot sites. It explores how each of the sites planned to meet the objectives of Right2BCared4, looks at any changes compared to plans submitted to the former department and identifies early benefits and challenges since implementation.
