8% of survey complete.

The Care Leavers Association is a national user-led charity working to improve the lives of people who were in care as children. All of our trustees and the majority of staff spent time in care.  We aim to bring together the voices of care leavers of all ages so that we can improve the current care system and improve outcomes for individuals.

The health needs of care leavers of all ages are often ignored.  We want to change that, so that health services are better able to help care leavers.

We are working with 12 NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG’s) across England, to raise awareness about the health issues facing care leavers as well as in the longer term to improve services and health outcomes.

We would  like to know about your health and your experience of health services. This survey is open to care leavers of any age. What you tell us will go to help improve services.

Please take some time to answer the questions as fully as you can. Please feel free to add additional information in the boxes provided.

All of the information will be treated with the strictest confidence. All the data will remain anonymous and will be security protected.

By completing this you will help us to improve health services for care leavers and looked after children.

We would like you to give us as much information as you feel comfortable giving. However, please be kind to yourself and think about your own reactions. If you think remembering some of your past experiences will have too negative an effect then please do not put yourself through the survey.

If you feel there are questions you do not want to answer then do not answer them.
