Action for Children's chief executive says most parents 'wouldn't dream' of asking their children to leave home unless they were ready to - and believes children in the care system should be afforded the same privilege.
The trauma that many young people experience before being taken into care can mean that they are not ready to live independently at 18 years old. Many care leavers are forced out of the care system and into a lonely, confusing and sometimes dangerous independent life.
We believe that the Welsh Government must give young people in care the same chance to stay in a loving home that others of the same age get.
