    Abstract

    Looked after young people and care leavers have frequently faced a range of adverse childhood events, struggle in their journey into adulthood and lack the consistent support that their non-looked after peers benefit from, including from family and social networks that they can rely on in times of crisis. This Info Sheet advises on who is a looked after person/carer leaver, how and why it’s important to identity them and how they can be supported.
