Abstract

Whilst there is a considerable literature on the difficulties faced by young people leaving local authority care, much less is known about how children who have been brought up in kinship care get on as they reach their late teens and early adulthood. Do they do better or worse than care leavers and how do they compare with young people in the general population? This study is the first of its kind to look at these questions.
