Partnership Grants

Development of ‘Journey’, a digital resource for care leavers

This year, the Foundation’s partnership with Barnardo’s on the £1 million project to develop a ground-breaking digital resource to support young people leaving care concluded. Barnardo’s has now released the live version of ‘Journey’ with testing currently involving 156 young people and care staff.

Following Barnardo’s’ decision to bring development of the pathways planning tool in-house, the team has been able to closely monitor testing and feedback and respond to necessary changes in a timely manner. Initial feedback from Journey has been overwhelmingly positive. Barnardo’s has also developed mental health and physical health tools as part of Journey’s evolution, which are being tested in Barnardo’s services.
