Our Partners

We work closely with a large number of organisations and partners and we are keen to build relationships with others in the leaving care sector.

Department for Education & other government departments

We work closely with the Care Leavers team at DfE, with members of their team regularly presenting at our events and consulting with the Young People’s Benchmarking Forum. We use the collective voice of the forum to influence priorities for policy that will make a difference to care experienced young people. The forum also works with other government departments including the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities around accommodation.
