Inter-Agency Working: How Education Providers Can Work with Other Services to Maximise the Outcomes of Care Leavers

On the 20th of June 2023, over 100 delegates joined us at the University of Greenwich’s Medway Campus in Chatham to celebrate the achievements of care leavers across our institutions, and to look at how we can work with greater holism towards improving the outcomes of our care leavers.

We heard from Karen Sharp, East Kent Integrated Care Partnership Programme Director, with a story of defying prejudices and finding success.

We were also fortunate to hear from care-experienced students who sought asylum in the UK, whose stories were humbling.

We ran five workshops, which featured the debut of autism awareness, as well as ones led by Virtual School Kent, ECPAT UK, the St. Giles Trust and the NHS, and, in a break from tradition, an all-delegates workshop.
