Young People and the Care Experience Research, Policy and Practice Nick Frost ; Julie Shaw

The care system looks after the most vulnerable young people in society - those who are, for a variety of reasons, unable to live with their parents. Young People and the Care Experience examines what can be done to support young people to remain at home, and if this is not possible, how they can be supported whilst in care and on leaving care. The book explores the range of options - foster care, children's homes and adoption - and how these options interact. Using the latest research and framing the issues through both psycho-social and legal perspectives, the book provides an in-depth analysis of young people's experience of the care system, and how it can be improved. Examining the challenges faced by children on their journey from initially entering care to living independently after care, the book places these issues in a global context. Specifically, it discusses how to support children and young people at home an analysis of the history and demographics of children placed in care the challenges faced by children living in foster care the challenges faced by children living in a children's home. the challenges faced by children being adopted leaving care The book will be of interest to all those working with children in care, or those who have experience of the care system as a professional, carer or young person.
