Leo and Shelby with Luke at today
Leo and Shelby with Luke at today's roundtable in Parliament

I’m so proud of Leo and Shelby, two care leavers from Plymouth, who joined me again in Parliament this week to make their case for a better deal for care leavers with senior MPs and Lords.

I’ve been campaigning with Leo, Shelby and other young people in Plymouth for the government to introduce a rent guarantor scheme for care leavers to help them find their feet in the private rental sector after leaving care.

On Monday I also asked the Housing Minister to back our campaign. You can see my question – and the positive response from the Minister here:


Plymouth City Council are doing a good job with care leavers in our city, but they need a better deal from Government. You can read about my campaign for care leavers in my latest column in the Herald by clicking here.
