The project helps young people towards a brighter future with careers guidance, help applying for opportunities, work experience, practical careers advice and barrier-busting long-term support. Dedicated Transition Coaches work closely with the Leaving Care Service to provide tailored support to each young person on the programme, guiding them in to education, employment and training and supporting them. The use of speech, language and communication needs screening alongside the expertise of the transition coaches to particularly focus on EET outcomes is an innovative intervention that has not been attempted before. As part of the screening process each young person goes through a speech, language and communication needs assessment, and is referred to a speech & language therapist if required. The transitions coach is trained to screen and refer to specialist services.

Target population

The programme will be working with 100 care leavers aged between 16 and 21 who are NEET, at risk of becoming NEET and those who are termed ‘unavailable’.

INDIGO data are shared for research and policy analysis purposes. INDIGO data can be used to support a range of insights, for example, to understand the social outcomes that projects aim to improve, the network of organisations across projects, trends, scales, timelines and summary information. The collaborative system by which we collect, process, and share data is designed to advance data-sharing norms, harmonise data definitions and improve data use. These data are NOT shared for auditing, investment, or legal purposes. Please independently verify any data that you might use in decision making. We provide no guarantees or assurances as to the quality of these data. 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. Even when data are high quality, interpretation or generalisation to different contexts may not be possible and/or requires additional information and/or expertise. Help us improve our data quality: email us at if you have data on new projects, changes or performance updates on current projects, clarifications or corrections on our data, and/or confidentiality or sensitivity notices.
