DfE issues revised statutory guidance: Planning Transition to Adulthood for Care Leavers
The DfE has revised its Children Act 1989 guidance for local authorities with respect to planning for care leavers. The guidance applies to all directors, managers, frontline staff and partner agencies.
The intention of the guidance is to ensure insofar as is possible that care-leavers are given the same level of care, support, opportunities and chances as their peers to enable their successful transition into adulthood.
The guidance can be downloaded here and will be made available in the Public Law section of our Resources page.
