Care leavers: digital inclusion

The Centre for Excellence for Children’s Care and Protection (CELCIS) has published a report looking at care leavers’ experiences of digital exclusion before and during the coronavirus pandemic in Scotland.

Recommendations include: rolling out digital access for all care leavers by integrating this into the pathway planning and support in all local authorities; and upskilling workers to ensure they can better support young people to develop their digital skills.
