Young people who have been in care often struggle to succeed in employment. Innovation for Employment is a European Union funded employability project for care leavers. The partners have developed a shared model of social and emotional well-being training for care leavers that has been piloted and evaluated across all the countries. In addition, each partner country has developed its own employability model, providing work skills, experience and career support to care leavers.
