Leaving Well

Collaboratively putting care leavers at the heart of their decisions

Leaving Well is a digital tool that puts care leavers at the heart of decisions for their future. It’s a collaborative web app that’s designed to make pathway planning more valuable for everyone, and improve life outcomes for young people leaving care. 

Leaving Well supports young people to have ownership and agency over their transition to independence, with their voice, ambitions and feelings at the core of their pathway plan. In doing so, this frees up time for staff away from administrative processes so that they can spend more time providing support to their young people. As a dynamic web app, Leaving Well provides managers with live outcomes data and information to guide decision making and enable support to be targeted to those most in need.

Leaving Well has been developed in partnership with Local Authorities and in consultation with academics and the wider leaving care community.
