Care Leaver Social Impact Bond Award

Sheffield City Council has been awarded a Social Impact Bond to the value of up to £1.3 million following a successful bid to the Children’s Innovation Fund administered by Spring Consortium.


Acceptance of this funding will allow Sheffield to address this imbalance for care leavers not in education, employment or training (NEET) and, provide this opportunity for this cohort to engage in a tailored programme of support that will be embedded in the care leavers’ service. The programme will work in partnership with young people empowering them to fulfil their potential and take control of their future working to achieve agreed outcomes. We will offer the cohort opportunities to take part in interventions that will provide them with the skills and the resilience to be ready to tackle their journey into education, employment or training.
