The impact of Cost of Living Crisis on Care Leavers.

In August 2022, Catch 22 and the National Leaving Care Benchmarking Forum (NLCBF) produced a report on the impact of the cost-of-living crisis on young people. Some of the key challenges being experienced by young people include:

  • Debt
  • Housing
  • Shopping
  • Health (including mental health)
  • Isolation
  • Aspirations
  • Economic insecurity
  • Exploitation

The report goes on to make a number of suggestions to policy makers as to how they could support care leavers through these difficult and challenging times and a link to access the full report is included below to enable you to find out more!
