Het organiseren van integrale en toekomstgerichte ondersteuning voor jongeren bij de overgang naar zelfstandigheid is een uitdaging waar menig beleidsmaker, manager en professional mee bezig is. In andere landen werken ze hier ook hard aan. 

De overgang naar volwassenheid is 'a big deal!', zeggen ze in Schotland. Daar zijn ze al wat langer met dit onderwerp bezig. Een goede relatie tussen een jongere en professional is daar onderdeel van het landelijke beleid. Het wordt zelfs gezien als kwaliteitsindicator binnen de jeugdhulp. Ook is er een landelijk convenant opgesteld om domeinoverstijgende samenwerking te operationaliseren en te borgen.

Programma

Tijdens de inspiratie- en verdiepingssessie op 8 oktober geeft Kenny McGhee van CELCIS (Center for Excellence for Children's Care and Protection) Schotland een kijkje in de keuken. Hij neemt ons mee in hun successen, leermomenten en actuele uitdagingen van toekomstgericht werken.

Vervolgens zetten we de ervaringen van Schotse collega's af tegen de situatie in Nederland en verdiepen we ons gezamenlijk in een aantal praktische thema’s.

    Kenny works with corporate parents and other partners at national and local level providing bespoke consultancy, training and expert support to improve services and outcomes for young people transitioning from care to adulthood and interdependence. Kenny works with key stakeholders to close the implementation gap between policy and practice, offering a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience gained over many years as a practitioner, manager and trainer. Working as Throughcare & Aftercare Lead at CELCIS and based at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Kenny has been actively involved in the development and implementation of policy, practice and research into issues impacting on care leavers, and the development of the Scottish Care Leavers Covenant.
  • A big deal in Scotland 
    In Scotland, like many other countries, outcomes for young people ageing out of public care remain disproportionately poor across a range of measures compared to the general population. The cumulative impact of children’s experiences pre-care, in-care and post-care has a significant impact on successful transitions into adulthood and interdependence. While there are many examples of good practice, research by CELCIS in 2014 informs that aftercare support and assistance for care leavers in Scotland remains variable within and across local authority areas. Practice remains complex, challenging and inconsistent despite this research knowledge, policy, guidance and legislative drivers that should provide a positive and enabling context. Recent legislation in Scotland has acknowledged, and begun to address, the ongoing bureaucratic, structural and cultural issues which impact on young people leaving care. Most significantly increased attention is paid to the age at which young people transition out of care placements and their ongoing support needs into adulthood. The session will address some of the challenges of implementing public policy for young people ageing out of public care, and draw on the ongoing and developing learning available from the Scottish experience. This will include specific reference to the importance of relationship-based practice, staying put’ and the principles and practice of corporate parenting, highlighting the importance of cross-sector, multi-agency collaboration.
