Care leavers’ well-being during the Covid-19 Pandemic: Key Messages for Leaving Care Workers

Responding to Coronavirus is a challenge for us all and no different in our work with children in care and care leavers. As we respond to new circumstances it is important that we plan our services not only to keep our children and young people safe and supported, but to make their lives as positive as possible at this time.

Key Findings

  • The majority of care leavers who have responded to our survey have told us how much they value the support of their leaving care workers.
  • When care leavers are asked who gives them emotional support, just under half of them said it was their leaving care worker (second only to friends).
