85% of leaving care teams in England are members of the National Leaving Care Benchmarking Forum. Membership is open to all English Local Authorities.
“Being part of NLCBF over a period of time has allowed us to massively improve the services we offer to care leavers. The opportunity to hear best practice from around the country from managers, practitioners and most importantly young people has inspired us to think creatively and work in different ways. The improvements in Coventry have been recognised by partners, Ofsted and our young people. Big changes include introduction of a House Project, improved support to care leavers in custody and a strong local offer which involves local businesses as well.”
