Carefree and Research in Practice formed a research partnership in 2018, supported by funding from the Listening Fund. Through a number of workshops and further conversations, Research in Practice has captured evidence related to Carefree’s approach to supporting young people and young adults with care experience. This report aims to distil this evidence and deliver key messages on ways in which other organisations can improve the lives of people in and leaving care.
