Reciprocal Encounters - Young Adults Leaving Care

Project Details

Description

This study will explore, with young adults themselves, how we can develop young person-based social work guidelines on how to support the well-being of young adults leaving care system. This study uses participatory research methods and undertakes research with young adults (from 18 to 25 years of age). The research results will be used to find ways to improve options for young adults leaving care to participate in their communities and obtain new skills that will be useful, for instance, in their working life.
