Commissioning Tool Kit for Care Leavers

This booklet has been developed by The Care Leavers Association as part of a Department of Health funded project to improve commissioning and health outcomes for care leavers. It can be used as a stand-alone toolkit or seen in conjunction with the report Caring For Better Health which can be downloaded from The CLA website at

The Care Leavers Association is a user-led charity established to improve the lives of people who have spent time in the care of the state. Its vision is for “a good life in care, a good life after care. It does this by bringing together the voices of care leavers of all ages to improve the current care system, improve the quality of life of care leavers throughout the life course and change for the better society’s perception of people who have been in care.

The Department of Health funding was received through the Voluntary Sector Investment programme, Strategic Development Fund.
