- Action for Children's report 'Chance to Stay' reveals young people who stay in foster care achieve more qualifications (55%) and are less likely to be involved in alcohol and substance misuse than those who leave by the age of 18.
- The report also reveals that those who leave care at 18 could cost the UK and Welsh Governments an estimated £131,000 more per person in benefits and public service support than those who leave care later.
- Currently young people in care must leave at the age of 18, and some as young as 16, even if they do not feel ready to live alone. The average age other young people choose to move out of the family home is 24.
