Due to the high instances of young people in care becoming homeless after leaving care, the study I undertook for my PhD in design research explored how an intervention could be co-designed to support young people and leaving care workers (LCWs) to share and elicit views about where a young person could live when they leave care. This article describes the methodology I worked through to re-design this interaction and why I think this approach resulted in positive outcomes for the people who tested the new interaction.
