Empowering Care Leavers: Navigating Adulthood in the Digital Age 💻

In today’s digital age, the challenges faced by care leavers in Europe are both compounded and potentially alleviated by the ongoing wave of digitalization. As these individuals navigate the transition into adulthood without traditional family structures, they often encounter barriers in accessing essential services, education, employment, and housing. However, digitalization also presents unique opportunities to address these challenges and empower care leavers to thrive independently.

One of the primary obstacles care leavers face is accessing vital information and resources. Digital platforms and online resources can bridge this gap by providing easily accessible information on available support services, educational opportunities, job openings, and housing options. By leveraging digital tools, care leavers can overcome geographical and logistical barriers, gaining access to a wealth of resources that may otherwise be out of reach.
