Care Leaver Survey and the Care Leaver Covenant

The MOD has recently signed the Care Leavers Covenant

DCYP are conducting a survey and are asking care leavers to share their views on how to improve the support offered to Service personnel who have spent time in local authority care. An announcement was made recently on DefNet asking for feedback by completing an anonymous 3 question survey or by speaking to someone in person by contacting the Directorate of Children and Young People at DCYP-CareLeavers@mod.gov.uk

If you are a care leaver in the Armed Forces, DCYP want to hear from you.​
