Treat care leavers with more empathy, business and education leaders urged

Care leavers must be shown more empathy by education and business leaders to increase opportunities for vulnerable young people, organisations supporting care leavers have said.  The call is being made by more than 200 organisations that are signatories to the Care Leaver Covenant, a promise made by private, public or voluntary organisations to provide support for care leavers aged 16-25 to help them to live independently. To mark Care Leavers Week (26 October – 1 November), the organisations will urge business and education leaders to offer more opportunities to young people leaving care.
