Too many young people in London are entering a care system that fails to improve their life chances, and leaves them more likely to be emotionally distressed, unemployed, homeless, or to enter the criminal justice system. The longer a young person spends in the care system, the more likely they are to experience poorer outcomes. At the same time, local authorities with differing levels of demand, and variable budgets, support young people through a wide range of different approaches with inconsistent outcomes.
The project focused on two EBPs:
Alongside this, a single referral pathway (SRP) was established, as well as panel meetings to manage the referral and allocation of young people from each local authority.
