Care leavers

Esmée Fairbairn has launched a new £10m fund for charities working with young people leaving care, with the grantmaker taking a more targeted and “evidence-based” approach to funding. The five-year programme, Young People Leaving Care, aims to invest £2m per year in projects that support young people leaving care to make the transition to adult hood. It was informed by Esmée’s collaboration with Social Finance’s Social Impact Incubator. Esmée said it expects most support to be made in the form of grants but will consider social investments as well.
