OFSTED Leaving Care Survey

Ofsted are doing some research to find out more about what happens to prepare children for leaving care and how these decisions are made.

You’re no longer in care when you turn 18 but your council must still provide you with some support, including a personal adviser and plan. This survey has been co-designed with children in care and care leavers.  The survey is for children currently preparing to leave care and care leavers aged 16 and over (however long ago they left care). 

The findings will help Ofsted, and others, to understand what is important when people are leaving care, and whether the planning and preparation you receive focuses on the right things.

The survey is open until 23 July 2021 and can be found here:
