The care system looks after the most vulnerable young people in society – those who are, for a variety of reasons, unable to live with their parents. Young People and the Care Experience examines what can be done to support young people to remain at home, and if this is not possible, how they can be supported whilst in care and on leaving care. The book explores the range of options – foster care, children’s homes and adoption – and how these options interact. Using the latest research and framing the issues through both psycho-social and legal perspectives, the book provides an in-depth analysis of young people’s experience of the care system, and how it can be improved.

Examining the challenges faced by children on their journey from initially entering care to living independently after care, the book places these issues in a global context. Specifically, it discusses

  • how to support children and young people at home
  • an analysis of the history and demographics of children placed in care
  • the challenges faced by children living in foster care
  • the challenges faced by children living in a children’s home.
  • the challenges faced by children being adopted leaving care

The book will be of interest to all those working with children in care, or those who have experience of the care system as a professional, carer or young person. It will also be of interest to researchers and students of developmental and social psychology, social work, and also to policy makers.

Review:

"This is a very valuable book. Shaw and Frost are to be congratulated on completing such a comprehensive and ambitious project. It provides a very good overview of services for children in care and current debates. The authors are well informed, make good use of research evidence and provide a wide-ranging and balanced commentary and critique on key issues. It will serve as an excellent introduction to the sector, particularly for social work students and others seeking to develop careers in working with disadvantaged children" - David Berridge, Head of the Centre for Family Policy and Child Welfare, University of Bristol, UK
