Care Leaders has worked with over 250 young people in and leaving care in London and the North East of England to help their transition into independent living by giving them the confidence and skills to be involved in determining their own futures after care.

Young people involved in the project have interviewed social workers and Council officials and successfully campaigned for more supported housing and better services.  They have improved their employability prospects and gained accreditation in digital media and journalism skills.
