Cuts Watch #44: Care leavers hit by cuts

10 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Care leavers hoping to go to university could be badly hit by cuts as local authorities will not be able to support them. Community Care report that with tight budgets councils will inevitably prioritise funding care placements over supporting care leavers to move into higher education.

Sonia Jackson, professor of social studies and education at the Institute of Education, told Community Care that she was seeing rising numbers of councils struggling to support and fund care leavers through higher education due to “increasing” pressure on their budgets.
