Care Leavers’ Association

Provide advice and information on care leavers' issues

Aims:

To end the economic and social disadvantage of those who were in care by achieving significant, positive change.

Services provided:

The CLA works with all care leavers over the age of 16. We are guided by the views of our membership and thus have a wide range of areas of interest and activity. However, our work can be grouped into five main areas:

  • User Led Support – A Network Project, group support, social networking site and virtual mechanisms to help people connect.
  • Projects – Areas of work with specific outcomes – young people, access to records, speaking out media.
  • Training and Assessment – We work with a wide range of organisations to improve service delivery to care leavers through training and quality assessment.
  • Advice, information and signposting – Focus on informing care leavers about their rights through signposting to additional support services and developing our guides and fact sheets while providing some individual casework.
  • Research, Policy and Campaigns – We conduct, collate and promote research about care leavers and produce policy guides to raise awareness of care leaver issues. We campaign on issues to change the care system and improve the quality of life of adult care leavers.
