The Care Leaver Covenant, a Department for Education initiative, was launched today by Nadhim Zahawi, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Children and Families.

The Covenant has been established to improve support to young people aged 16-25 leaving care into independent living. The initiative encourages education providers, businesses, and charities to pledge their commitment to supporting care leavers by signing up to the Covenant.

The initiative is being coordinated by Spectra First. To find out more, visit the Care Leaver Covenant website.
