New book written for care leavers… by Oxfordshire care leavers

Care leavers in Oxfordshire now have access to a new source of information to help them navigate the challenges of adulthood, thanks to a book written by those who have experienced the process themselves.

A care leaver’s survival guide (opens new window)’, designed by former children in care from Oxfordshire, is now ready for use by Oxfordshire county council as a new and valuable resource for young people preparing to leave care. The interactive and informative book includes practical advice on subjects such as education, writing a cv, preparing for a job interview, paying bills, housing options, and tips around mental wellbeing.
