This time…new figures showing a sharp rise in the number of care leavers facing homelessness. The figures come from the government’s annual Statutory Homelessness in England report

They show that 3,710 care leavers were either homeless or under threat of homelessness for the year 2022/23.That represents a rise of 33 per cent since 2018.

To find out what lies behind the statistics and what we need to do about it, Adrian Goldberg is joined by Sophie Shasby, a recent care leaver; Katharine Sacks-Jones, CEO of Become, the national charity for children in care and care leavers; and journalist Martin Barrow, who is also an experienced foster carer.

Produced in Birmingham by Adrian Goldberg and Harvey White.
