Staying put: 18+ family placement programme (Peer research report)

Summary report which reflects the views and experiences of young people from six pilot authorities (five operating the ‘pure familial’ model and one operating the ‘hybrid’ model).

The aims of the evaluation were to explore the role and contribution that staying put can make to promoting positive outcomes for young people, including:

• Remaining in employment, education or training
• Nurturing attachments to significant ‘parental’ figures
• Making the transition to adulthood in a more gradual way just like other young people who can rely on their own families for this support.
