This volume aims to help all those working or studying in the area of leaving care to develop policies and practice that should ensure care leavers have opportunities to achieve their potential and have successful lives. This includes social workers, residential child care workers, foster carers, Connexions workers, academics, policy-makers and students. So, while each chapter has been written by practitioners, professionals or academics, many contain comment and observation by young people who are either in the care system or who have left care. Together they strive to create a comprehensive picture, including: the social, policy and legal contexts in which young people approach adulthood in the UK and the implications for them for them, espeically those who are being looked after; participation, advocacy, empowerment and complaints, as viewed from professionals' and young people's perspectives; skills and knowledge for developing best practice, including examples concerning - support groups, helping those leaving leaving care from "out of area" placements, supported lodgings schemes and prevention work with young parents; issues relating to asylum seeking and refugee children, health, mental health, disability, education, training and employment, finacial matters and the role of the Connexions Service; and ways forward for leaving care services.
