We're all painfully aware that care-experienced young people are over-represented in unemployment statistics. This newly created focus group met for the first time in September 2017 with a wide range of attendees keen to address the issue.

Scotland's Youth Employment Strategy, Developing the Young Workforce, includes two recommendations specifically to supporting care leavers into employment, and it's also one of the pillars of the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant.

This group is aimed at members and corporate parents who have a specific responsibility for supporting care leavers into employment. As part of this group, attendees have been able to share good practice and keep up to date with Scottish Government initiatives.

At this meeting we will identify and consider the obstacles to implementation, what data we now need to collect to enhance our case for change and join up the good practice that already exists.

Members attend for free. A fee of £29.95 will be payable for non-members. Focus group fees are non-refundable.
