To Improve & standardise the care leaver offer
A discussion was held at the CLNM meeting on 14th March 2020 about the difference in the care leaver offer across many authorities. They believed this to be unfair and therefore took action.
On the 30th March 2020 CLNM wrote to heads of service across the eight Local Authorities that have House Projects throughout the country. They were asked two specific questions:
- How much is your current leaving care grant?
- How much is your Birthday and Festivities allowance?
In order to review the differences effectively, the movement decided to evaluate a few items of the care leaver offer at a time. Once the movement are satisfied that they fully understand what each local authority offers they will co-ordinate a best practice offer and request local authorities that have House Projects to adhere to it.
