Young people leaving care need somewhere safe and suitable to live to help them make a positive transition into adulthood. Good housing underpins success in other areas of life.

This framework, developed by Barnardo's in partnership with St Basil's, draws together expertise from local authorities, voluntary sector organisations and young people across England on how to provide appropriate accommodation for care leavers. the framework has been developed for local authority commissioners, leaving care and housing managers, and for providers of housing and support for young people in England. It is intended to be used flexibly to suit local circumstances and needs, and provides a model that local authorities can adapt. It can be used both to help individual young people find the best accommodation locally for them, but also by commissioners to inform housing strategies and the supply of appropriate accommodation.
