CCFR's Staying Put evaluation used in an article in The Observer on tranisitons from care to adulthood.
11 June 2013

On Sunday 9th June 2013, The Observer published an article on teenagers being at risk from leaving foster care too soon. Included in the article was information about the Department for Education's Staying Put pilot which funded 11 local authorities between 2008 - 2011 to continue paying an allowance to foster carers of young people who chose to stay on after 18. CCFR carried out an evaluation of this piece of work.
