9 Short Stories from Care-leavers

This project created 9 individual films with Careleavers who have gone onto Further and Higher Education from a Care background. Currently in the UK, only 12% of young people who have been brought up in care, go on to University. This project used person-centred approaches to capture the insights and messages from Careleavers who have gone to University and College to create a resource for other young people in care and education professionals. The DVD of all 9 films was distributed to every school and college in the South West of England.

This project was funded by: Aimhigher Peninsula Programme.
