Welcome to the site that will tell you more about my study on care leavers in Ireland!

You will find information about the study, how to participate, and how to contact me here. Periodically, I will also post to the Updates and Progress page under the About This Study section so that people can learn about results and presentations as they happen.

I am a PhD researcher at Trinity College Dublin in the School of Social Work & Social Policy, and I am doing a study to learn more about what it is like to leave State care at the age of 18.

Thanks for being interested!
