"Life After Care"

The Juvenile Justice and Reintegration Working Groups of ACJRD held a seminar on “Life After Care” on Monday, 14th March, 2016.  This seminar was presented by Don Bosco Care.

Don Bosco Care speakers at this event were Brian Hogan CEO, Rachel Valentine and Ciaran Kenny.

The seminar was extremely interesting and very well received by all those present.  It looked at the supports in place for young people leaving state care at 18 years of age, where it started and how it has transitioned and encompassed the following issues;

• Lack of familial support and relationships
• Lack of community support and relationships
• Homelessness
• Criminal behaviour
• Mental health
• The rental market
• Physical well being
• Literacy
• Pregnancy
• Parenting
• Life skills
• Emotional well-being & support
• Mild disabilities
