'Moving On Up' reportA new national study, prepared by Dr Neil Harrison at the University of the West of England on behalf of the National Network for the Education of Care Leavers (NNECL).
'Moving On Up' report is the first study to provide an overall picture of care leavers in higher education. It explores the educational pathways of all young people in England who were 16 in 2008, tracking whether or not they entered higher education by 2015.
Insight paper: ‘Challenging Stigma in the care system’The Bright Spots research shows that being singled out, being stereotyped and treated differently is an on-going issue for both children in care and care leavers. The new Insight paper: ‘Challenging Stigma in the care system’, from Coram Voice and the University of Oxford, shares what children and young people have told us about stigma, what they want to see from services and gives examples of how local authorities have worked with children in care and care leavers to challenge stigma. Read it to see how you could challenge stigma.
