Survival of the fittest? Improving life chances for care leavers

Report based on a survey of 100 care leavers and consultation with those who work with them that identifies where progress still needs to be made to improve outcomes. The overwhelming response from our consultation, and the message of this report, is that whilst there has been real progress for care leavers in England in recent years, the vast majority of spending and support has been focussed on the better-off care leavers, predominantly those with a stable foster care placement and who are able to remain in education.
