LUSHEY, C. and MASKELL-GRAHAM, D., 2010. Care leavers and homelessness in England: protective factors offered by Right2BCared4 and Staying Put 18+ initiatives. Parity, 23 (5), pp. 22 - 23.
This paper will explore the relationship between leaving care and homelessness in England
and set the context for two initiatives currently being piloted; Right2BCared4 and Staying Put
18+ Family Placement Programme. The protective factors that underpin both pilots will be
outlined. In addition, a vulnerable group of care leavers will be identified that may fall
outside of these initiatives and may be at risk of the poorest outcomes in terms of
homelessness and accompanying challenges.
