Care leavers are learning to drive courtesy of a London charity after research showed the skill is of particular benefit to young people in the care system. Live Unlimited, a new charity set up last year to offer additional support to looked-after children and care leavers in Barnet, launched its Driving Ahead programme in response to the findings of a pilot scheme.

The study – Driving outcomes: learning to drive, resilience and young people living in residential care – showed learning to drive not only boosted looked-after children’s self-esteem and confidence, but also improved their relationships with adults and carers.
