Care Consortium Collaboration

August 8, 2016

AccessHE are proud members of the London Care Consortium, hosted by the Greater London Authority and was pleased to attend the most recent meeting of this group at the end of July. Those attending share information on the different projects and programmes they are running with looked after children and care leavers but the truly most powerful part of the meeting is hearing from young people themselves. An interesting discussion was had around the recently published policy paper ‘Keep on caring: supporting young people from care to independence’, a cross-government strategy to transform support for young people leaving care.

AccessHE have met a wide range of practitioners through this forum and are looking forward to working with Drive Forward and Working Chance: Total Transitions on our collaborative event in November for care leavers currently in HE.
