Leaving Care and the Transition to Adulthood
Although the challenges of effectively supporting youth in care in their transition to adulthood are formidable, this chapter concludes this book, which discusses how the needs of youth, research findings, and supports interventions, have informed reflection on improving youth services. One of the central conclusions of this book is the importance of maintaining support for youth who lack assistance from friends and relatives well after they age out of youth protection services. This support must cover all the spheres of the youths’ life, from finance and psychosocial well-being, to housing, as whell as support for staying in school, and workforce integration and more.
