The How Good is Your Throughcare & Aftercare Service: Quality indicators for best practice document was published by Staf in October 2006, giving Local Authorities and third sector and private organisations a way of assessing the quality and extent of their services for care-experienced young people, and allowing them to identify areas for future development.

The document provides quality indicators for best practice for a number of different areas, including:

  • Young People's involvement;
  • Throughcare preparation;
  • Assessment, planning and reviewing;
  • Health and wellbeing;
  • Accommodation;
  • Financial support;
  • Education, training and employment;
  • Management of risk; and
  • Quality assurance & development of services.
