Understanding young people’s experiences of leaving care

Angela Browne of Qa Research recently conducted six focus groups with young care leavers to give CYP Now and the Bryn Melyn Group Foundation a greater understanding of young people’s care leaving experiences.

The research set out to understand how young people cope when they leave care and to identify any ways the care system can be improved.

Angela and some of the young people who took part in the research will soon present the findings at a special half-day conference to be held in London during National Care Leavers’ week.
