Grover, Christopher and Stewart, J (2004) Care leavers,financial support and the 2000 Children (Leaving Care) Act. Journal of Poverty and Social Justice, 12 (2). pp. 107-111. ISSN 1759-8273Full text not available from this repository.
We examine those aspects of the 2000 Children (Leaving Care) Act that have placed a duty on local authorities to provide financial support for care leavers from October 2001. It is argued that the good intentions of the Act may be eroded by inherent problems in the new system of support because it is structured through reference to social security policies that are widely held to be problematic for all young people needing to claim benefit.
