abstract = "Information on care leavers and their situations is very limited. In an effort to close this informational gap and provide a foundation for decision makers, SOS Children's Villages has put together an unprecedented review of the circumstances under which young people leave alternative care in Europe and Central Asia. The report is the main publication of the I Matter campaign, and highlights personal, social, legal, and administrative challenges facing care leavers. It also identifies weaknesses in legislation and practice, and provides targeted recommendations. The report consists of 13 country reviews and includes first hand accounts from young people. The study reveals that in the countries under review, the process of preparation to leave care and the subsequent transition into adulthood is chronically flawed. Recurring themes emerge across national boundaries, such as difficulties to find housing, gaps in coverage, risk of abuse, and emotional hardships of young people. These findings highlight the importance of deinstitutionalization efforts, national standards, and the dissemination of good practice. ",
