Abstract

Presentation at conference organised by The Care Leavers Foundation.
New Belongings is working with a small number of local authorities to bring the principles and concepts of Access All Areas and the Charter for Care Leavers down to a local level; the aim is to embed these into local services and communities and reduce the sense of long term isolation often expressed by care leavers.
We know that there is a great deal of goodwill, untapped potential, and desire to improve the lives of vulnerable care leavers in every local authority; we don’t pretend to have all the answers; to be genuine and lasting change has to spring from local knowledge and resources. The New Belongings team will not bring all the answers, it will help local authorities to ask the right questions and assist them to develop solutions that really can create new belongings for care leavers.
