The project will offer support for care leavers into education, employment or training. The service will include some co-production with young people who will also participate in governance and steering arrangements to ensure services are meaningful and impact is maximised. This will include specific interest groups and responses where appropriate, for example linking with parenting programmes and our care leaver young parents group or asylum seeking group. The programme will deliver co-located staff focussed on working with our young people and the team around them. Adjustments will be made to tailor the programme to individual and specific need, aspirations and ability. It will utilise a psychologically informed approach to support young people to overcome adversity and support the achievement of EET outcomes. Services provided through this funding award will be in addition to existing statutory and other support services for care leavers. It will work in an integrated, holistic and psychologically informed way to help more care leavers to successfully gain qualifications, complete the training and education courses of their choosing and enter/sustain employment.

Target population

Young people who have moved on from their foster or other care placement aged between 16 and 25 years (who are NEET or at risk of NEET) and to whom the local authority owes a range of duties under the Children Act 1989 (as amended by the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000) and Children and Social Work Act 2017. The full cohort of care leavers must be identified in Year 1 (2018-19) – there will be no exclusions, with all care leavers who are NEET or at risk of NEET eligible for services. Furthermore, the approach is designed to reach and support those young people furthest from the labour market and to help deliver a supported pathway to employment.

Data may be inaccurate, incomplete, inconsistent, and/or not current for various reasons: INDIGO is a collaborative and iterative initiative that mostly relies on projects all over the world volunteering to share their data. We have a system for processing information and try to attribute data to named sources, but we do not audit, cross-check, or verify all information provided to us. It takes time and resources to share data, which may not have been included in a project’s budget. Many of the projects are ongoing and timely updates may not be available. Different people may have different interpretations of data items and definitions.
