A new suite of resources has been produced by the Getting Ready Project to enhance care experienced young people’s knowledge and understanding of their rights and entitlements when planning to leave care. These resources can be used by young people and professionals to provide support for young people to safely transition from care, reducing the risk of homelessness and achieving housing stability amongst care leavers.
The resources specifically focus on building young people’s financial capability, in line with the core themes outlined in the Welsh Government’s Financial Inclusion Strategy document:
- Access to affordable credit and financial services;
- Access to financial information, including debt advice; and
- Building financial understanding and capability.
