Beyond Leaving Care: Promoting a sense of belonging and connectedness across the life course
02 February 2022
The Tilda Goldberg Centre for Social Work and Social Care at the University of Bedfordshire hosted a webinar on the 20th January, to contribute to ongoing debates about what measures are needed to maximise the life chances of young people negotiating the transition from care to adulthood.
The speakers presented findings from recent research, including the Care Leavers, Covid-19 and Transitions from Care study, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as part of UK Research and Innovation's rapid response to Covid-19.
Josh MacAlister, chair of the Independent Review of Children's Social Care and a couple of care experienced researchers offered their reflections on the presentations.
