Young people's involvement in the Pan London Care Leavers Offer
The Pan London Care Leavers Offer forms part of the work by the Association of London Directors of Children’s Services (ALDCS) and is led by a strategic working group of policy makers from ALDCS, London Councils, Partnership for Young London (PYL) and The Greater London Authority.
Newham council has developed an intensive youth support offer via the Youth Empowerment Service, which provides intensive youth support alongside the multi-agency and advocacy for young people up to age 25 at risk of exploitation and harm.
Putting children at the heart of policy making, including involving them directly in policy development, is important. Councils are already working hard to engage children and young people in policy development, as seen in a series of case studies on this page.
