teenMany children and young people in care feel vulnerable and isolated and do not end up receiving the necessary support. It is hardly surprising that looked-after children are more likely to have special educational needs (SEN), not do as well at school as their peers and are five times less likely to go to university.

It appears that despite improvements in legislation, those in the care system still do not get consistent support to help them achieve the same life chances as other young people.

The Who Cares? Trust, a charity representing children in care and young care-leavers, want the views of looked-after young people aged 16 or over, to discover how young care leavers feel about being included at school and what they think needs to be done to improve outcomes. Devised by young care-leavers, it should take five to ten minutes to complete and is completely confidential. It can be accessed at www.surveymonkey.com/s/InclusionViews
