Young care-leavers who have lived for a long period of time within institutional care settings apart from their birth families represent a target group of persons at great risk of poverty and social exclusion. This report is the result of a workshop held with a group of young care-leavers drawn from ten different charitable children’s institutions or rehabilitation centres and of a questionnaire carried out on the young care-leavers. The objective is to hear their voices and to better understand the challenges and problems facing children living in and transitioning out of institutional care.
