Abstract: This interim report presents findings from a mapping exercise and focus groups undertaken between January and June 2009 with social workers, personal advisers, independent reviewing officers (IROs) and other key professionals from each of the pilot sites, to explore: How each of the pilot sites planned to meet the objectives of Right2BCared4 and any changes compared to plans submitted to the former Department for Children, Schools and Families; and Early benefits and challenges since implementation.
Description: 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. This is the interim report.
