Authorities, providers and youngsters in youth care all over Europe are struggling with aftercare strategies. A more efficient preparation of life after the care is needed, and a better understanding of the specific needs of the youngsters by social institutions and public services, once they have left care.
This project tackles those 2 aspects:
Both strands are piloted in 2 regions:
56 Child protection professionals, 40 community leaders, 300 young care leavers (direct beneficiaries) / 2510 young care leavers (indirect beneficiaries) will benefit from the project.
The combination of the Aftercare Protocol with the A Way Home Hub assures on different levels, and during several phases of the young person’s life, a guaranteed support. Young care leavers are better prepared in several life domains to have a better chance on successful transition and those who have a difficult transition decrease drastically.
