Now it is time to promote your specific offer(s) to care leaving teams and care leavers using our online app and other outlets.
Please note: the Care Leaver Covenant brokers care leaver opportunities and supports organisations to creatively consider how they might support care leavers.
The Care Leaver Covenant does not undertake applications, sifting, interviewing, selecting and matching activity on behalf of organisations as this forms part of your organisation’s offer.
Ready when you are
Drawing on the resourcefulness and imagination of your organisation and your working environment, you may have the potential to aid care leavers to move onto the next phase of their lives with greater success.
There are many different ways to play a positive part in a young care leaver’s progression and the nature of your organisation may help to define your offer.
For instance, it could be in the form of work experience, one-to-one mentoring, access to sport, education or technology etc. Gain inspiration from our current Covenant Signatories and their offers.
