Care Leavers' Charter of Rights
The Care Leaver’s Charter of Rights outlines key principles that Communities and Justice will follow in supporting care leavers as they transition to independent living.
It is intended to help care leavers become confident, resilient and independent adults who feel in charge of their own lives.
The Charter uses the voices of young people who are or were in care to say what is important to them, how they should be treated and what they expect from the practitioners who support them.
