Adullam Homes pledges support for Care Leavers Covenant


Adullam Homes has welcomed the launch of the Care Leavers Covenant by Nadhim Zahawi, Minister for Children and Families and urged the Government to ensure that its ambition to improve care leavers ou



Adullam Homes pledges support for Care Leavers Covenant

Care leavers struggle to achieve the same outcomes as their peers with 40% not in education, employment or training.

 

Adullam Homes, as a specialist support provider, has worked with young people for more than 45 years. The organisation is currently commissioned by Derbyshire and Leicestershire County Councils to deliver projects that aim to support care leavers to become more independent during the provision of the service, through acquiring the knowledge, skills, attitudes and behaviours required to sustain independent living. 

 

The Association has a long track record in helping young people to access other services, if necessary, as well as with budgeting, addressing debts, getting into education, training or employment and anything that may be a barrier to them being independent. 

 

Liberty House in Salford is another of Adullam’s long-standing successful services, which works with 16,17 and 18-year olds.  The project provides housing and support for former looked after children from the local area and unaccompanied children who enter the country on an asylum basis and come from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds including Iraq and Eritrea.

 

Commenting on the launch Chief Executive of Adullam Homes Trevor Palfreyman said: “I applaud this ambitious and far-reaching initiative, which has cross-party support. Nadhim Zahawi launched the Covenant, which was supported and attended by Greater Manchester Labour Mayor Andy Burnham. The involvement of blue-chip companies and high-profile businesses including Barclays and Rolls Royce is hugely encouraging and I pray that it provides life opportunities for young people who, usually through no fault of their own, find themselves in the care system.

 

“Leaving care is a daunting prospect for many and without a network of support and advice it is easy to understand why so many young people find themselves facing significant challenges. 

 

“The Care Leavers Covenant is wide-ranging and tackles some of the key issues faced by care leavers, particularly training and work opportunities. For more than 45 years we have provided support to enable our young people to learn the valuable life-skills that will allow them to go on to lead fulfilling and independent lives.

 

“We must invest in the future and remain committed to ensuring that young care leavers have the same life chances as everyone else.  This is why we have signed the Covenant and why Adullam Homes is determined to work with likeminded partners, local authorities and businesses to improve outcomes.  Across our services we have so many amazing success stories and will continue to play our part and drive forward innovative solutions to the problems faced by many in our society today.”
