Care matters time to deliver for children in care dcsf 2007
Care Matters:  Time To Deliver For Children In Care, DCSF, 2007

‘A high quality education provides the foundation for transforming the lives of children in care.  Children and young people have told us how important education is to their lives.  Children who leave care with no qualifications are less likely to be in education, employment or training, are five times more likely than those with qualifications to be in custody at age 19 and are nearly twice as likely to have lost touch with the local authority that supported them.’
