Thanks to Sam's hard work and enthusiasm, next term we'll be launching Foundations, a mobile guide to help young people leaving care with advice and resources on housing, education, the Pathway Plan and more!
"When I was first told about the opportunity to work on this project I did not have to think twice about it. It is very important to me because after I turned 18 I was very much lost as to what my rights are and what options are available to me. I was bombarded with leaflets, nothing really getting to the point of laying everything down. I want to help young care leavers, to guide them and educate them in a short and easy manner about what is available to them and let them know that there is help out there. I hope this resource will help ease the transition for care leavers."
Foundations will be part of the Care Leaver's Library, a collection of resources to support care leavers with literacy, numeracy and ICT, as well as guides to the process of applying to university and finding employment.
