New Belongings Programme

The New Belongings Programme (NBP) will develop a model for improving support for care leavers based on engagement and involvement of young people as experts in their own experience. The Bright Spots “Your Life Beyond Care” survey will be used alongside a self-assessment tool in NBP to provide a baseline and inform action planning by the participating local authorities and their young people.

The New Belongings programme was initially developed between 2013 and 2016 with funding from the Department for Education and has now found a new home with Coram Voice, who will use the lessons from the previous programme to support local authorities to develop their leaving care services together with their care leavers.
