Care leavers accommodation and support framework for Wales
The Care Leavers’ Accommodation and Support Framework for Wales is a model which aims to help organisations that support young people in making their journeys towards leaving care. It is written for local authority commissioners, leaving care managers, housing managers and providers of housing and support for young people. Having somewhere safe and secure to live is central to young people having a positive exit from care. However, there is no blueprint for success in terms of what needs to happen and each care experienced person’s experience of being looked after is different, and their experience of leaving care will also be different. The framework is designed to ensure that care leavers have the flexible support they need so that no care experienced person falls through the cracks. Shelter Cymru have worked with Welsh Government and a wide range of partners to update the previous framework published in 2016. The framework also has been divided up into four separate documents for ease of use, with the main link below going to a summary document. The four framework documents are then provided in the additional documents section below.
