    DescriptionMany young people leaving care, particularly those who were in residential care homes, describe their experience as a ‘care-cliff’. They find themselves over the cliff-edge of support into independent living; on their own, managing finances, housing, shopping, cooking and other life tasks with no one to turn to. This may have a negative impact on their lives well into adulthood.
