Edwards, G. (2011). Right2BCared4 Peer Researcher Summary Report. London: Department for Education.

Extract from Introduction (p. 5): “This report presents findings from the Right2BCared4 pilot, which was funded in 11 local authorities nationwide. The findings are based solely on the views of young people, collected by peer researchers in interviews. The peer researchers involved were all care experienced young people who were trained in research methods so that they could be part of the evaluation process and explore five key themes that are important during the transition from care:

• Relationships between key workers and young people
• Preparation for leaving care and independent living
• Pathway plans and reviews
• Current circumstances and anything else
• Improvements to the leaving care process.”
