Description:
The document particularly stresses that introducing a leaving care policy should never undermine good practice: young people should remain in their placement until they are ready to leave. Preparation for leaving care should be an integral part of their care plan. The policy also acknowledges the dynamics and complexities of leaving foster care .. The policy goes on to provide significant detail on the aims, purposes, principles and characteristics of leaving care services. It is helpful for a policy framework to situate leaving care in the context of a continuum of through-care services for young people, linking preventative services, services for young people in care, and aftercare. A model of service provision is set out: from identification of those young people who may leave care and an assessment of their needs; through all stages from preparation to leaving and aftercare; and the range of services required. It is intended that the range of services described will guide those persons or agencies with responsibility for implementation of this policy, and therefore the policy has attempted not to be prescriptive in relation to design or quantification of services. The range of services outlined is significant. Provision goes beyond the scope of health and social care. The point is consistently made that at strategic planning and at delivery level there is need for a comprehensive, multidisciplinary, multi-agency approach involving health, care, welfare, education, training and accommodation. Because of the "may" part of section 45 of the Child Care 1991 Act, individual workers and agencies, statutory and non-statutory, have been attempting to respond to May 2004 3 Leaving Care Policy Document the needs of young people leaving care in an aspirational rather than a regulatory or binding context. It is therefore hoped that the addition of a policy document will improve the mandate for the development of services to meet the needs of young people leaving care.
