Based on research from the Thomas Coram Research Unit, the contributors to this text look at the views and experiences of young people and provide an encouraging outlook of what those in care have the potential to achieve. Those factors that help to result in more successful outcomes are identified, and policy recommendations are made, for enabling young people in and leaving care to triumph when the odds are stacked against them. In Care and After adds a new dimension to the current literature on local authority care of young people and children. Those working within the fields of social care, health and education as well as students on social work courses will find this essential reading and a welcome addition.

'Although each chapter easily stands alone and can be dipped into for both references and ideas, together the whole book is more than the sum of its parts, and develops a greater understanding of the care field and the interrelationship of the issues covered.' - Child and Family Social Work, 2006
