Care Leavers






Carefree Cornwall has a wide range of partnerships, including with the Local Authority, the Learning Partnership, Careers South West and other charitable funders. We can deliver bespoke support to care experienced people of 15 and above who are not in education, employment or training or are at risk of being so.


We can work with young people through adolescence to enable them to develop resilience. Helping them cultivate the confidence and self-awareness to manage the challenges of adulthood.

We support care leavers to develop their independent living skills through challenges such as cooking and using public transport. And deliver fun activities to enable them to better manage their physical, emotional, sexual health and relationships

We will deliver this support in a range of ways:


  • Skills Your Way: Information advice and guidance to young people NEET or at risk of becoming so.
  • Care 360: One -to-one mentoring and support over a needs-led period of time. This project is currently funded through the Building Better Opportunites Fund.
  • Get Ready Group: A social learning group that meets weekly to develop the skills and confidence to move into education, employment or training. This provision is part funded by Skills for Young People


In 2018 we aim support between 30-45 young people in this way and help make Cornwall's return on young people in positive post-16 activity 76%.
