Every Child Leaving Care Matters (ECLCM)

Reason for signing

  • I work with looked after children and care leavers. On a regular basis I see care leavers who are aged 18-21 who are physically and emotionally unable to deal with the challenges and responsibilities of independent living which impacts on their overall life opportunities. All looked after children and care leavers deserve access to the same support regardless of whether their final placement is foster care or a residential setting.
