What Works for Young People Leaving Care?

Mike Stein

2004

What Works for Young People Leaving Care? Assesses the implication of the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 and explores related research in the context of history, law, practice and social and economic structures. The author examines the problems and challenges faced by young people leaving care, the services that are being provided to meet the needs of young people leaving care, the outcomes of leaving care services, and the relationship between research and theory. This wide-ranging appraisal of evidence-based practice will be invaluable for all those involved in developing and providing services for young people leaving care.
