When Care Ends: Lessons from Peer Research is the first major outcome of the I Matter peer research project of SOS Children's Villages International. In demonstrating that care leavers are at high risk of deprivation and often lack the social support they require, this report echoes and reinforces some of the findings of other recent research while also deepening and broadening our awareness of the challenges facing care leavers. Yet perhaps most importantly, this volume serves as a call for informed and responsive policy-making. As such, When Care Ends: Lessons from Peer Research offers recommendations designed to ensure that young people who have left care will not be left behind once more.
