Securing the best start in life for our children and young people

Supporting care leavers into adulthood


South Tyneside Council

As a Partners in Practice Local Authority, South Tyneside Council is leading an innovation project, “The Workplace”. This provides a comprehensive support package to young people exiting the care system, recognising that this population may face a range of additional barriers to entering work.


The service works with local training providers, employers and other key stakeholders such as social workers to align the needs of care leavers with tangible job prospects and ensure a network of pathways into employment and training.

The LGA Labour Group exists to fight the corner for Labour councillors at a national level, both within
the cross-party Local Government Association and with the Labour Party at Westminster. The Group provide a strong voice for Labour councillors and act as a platform for ideas and innovation for all those committed to an effective localist element to Labour politics and policies.
