Leaving Care – Experiences of Care Leavers in Poland and Germany
How do young people in Poland and Germany experience the process of transition from foster families and residential youth groups to independence?
In this qualitative, explorative comparative study, we are investigating the experiences of young people in Poland and Germany in cooperation with the Uniwersytet Warmińsko-Mazurski (Dr. Sylwester Zagulski) and other cooperation partners in Poland. In group discussions, we ask the young people for their recommendations for successful transition processes. The study also includes a system comparison of the legal and institutional conditions of leaving care in Poland and Germany.
