Care & Education practice materials include resources used by education and social care practitioners to support the education of care-experienced children and young people. It currently focuses on advice contributed by organisations to assist people in their practice. However, we are actively seeking examples of resources used directly with children and young people. If you have materials that you use and would like to share, please let us know by contacting ExChange: Care & Education at email@example.com.
