Get involved

We can help you to build a programme through which you can make a long-term difference to the care leavers - some of the UK's most disadvantaged young people - in your local area.

The care leavers I've met are truly extraordinary people who are ambitions, intelligent and deserve the same opportunities as all young people. The fact that many of them are seriously disadvantaged, having spent their lives in care, has inspired us as an organisation to help to improve their job prospects.

From offering visits, training or work placements through a variety of different national programmes, you can help care leavers to build their aspirations, confidence and skills for a successful working life.

For businesses, from offering visits, training or work placements through a variety of different national programmes, you can help care leavers to build their aspirations, confidence and skills for a successful working life.

For local authorities, we can work with you to develop ways in which care leavers from your area can access a locally-tailored programme, with support from businesses in the area.

Contact the national team to find out how you can support care leavers through existing programmes or to learn how we can work with you to build your own in-house programme.
