We are pleased to be collaborating with Making Research Count, King’s College London to offer discounted places on the following webinars

Care Leavers: The Meaning of Corporate Parenting Beyond the Age of 18?
Friday 16 July 2021, 1.30 – 3.00pm

Young people leaving the care system have to manage what foremost is an accelerated and compressed transition to adulthood. Since the Leaving Care Act 2000, there has been an attempt to personalise and support this process, applying the concept of the ‘corporate parent’ beyond the age of eighteen. However, many of those who are care experienced report that there are still many occasions when their needs are not adequately met. This webinar will explore:

    • The messages from research, including the voices of those care experienced with regard to the outcomes and process of leaving care;
    • The potential pitfalls in both service provision and practice, and how these can be addressed;
    • The particular challenges that care leavers have faced during the pandemic;
    • Examples from research of good and innovatory practice with care leavers.


Each workshop is £35 +VAT for members only
