Carried out by Coram’s Impact and Evaluation team, this independent evaluation of the New Belongings Programme is funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Using a range of tools such as the Baker and Dixon self-assessment for local authorities and the Your Life Beyond Care survey for care leavers, this evaluation report provides a baseline assessment of the starting point for the eight participating local authorities.

These tools will be administered again in spring 2022, allowing pre and post-data to be compared, which will enable the final evaluation report to describe any changes the New Belongings approach contributes to improving services for care leavers in participating local authorities.
