The 'No wrong door' (NWD) programme aimed to improve accommodation, education, employment and training support for young people who are in care or on the edge of care. Findings include: evidence to suggest that NWD is contributing to young people remaining out of the care system; evidence of a reduction in criminal activity for young people that were supported by the NWD innovation; cessation and reduction in substance misuse for 32 per cent of the NWD cohort; incidents of NWD young people going missing have halved (from 503 incidents to 253) since the year prior to NWD commencing.

The research findings raise challenging issues regarding current service delivery suggesting that, in addition to the provision of ongoing relationships and various types of support, young people in care will benefit from opportunities to face challenges and involvement in decision making.  These opportunities related to the development of positive self-perceptions which in turn is associated with increased resilience.  The implications of these findings are discussed in relation to the profession of educational psychology and in terms of wider service delivery and research implications.

Overall, pupil attendance has improved marginally since statistics were first collected in 2007-08; however, it is concerning that the level of unauthorised absence has increased from 27% in 2007-08 to 33% in 2011-12 and is double that reported in England. The Committee is concerned that the absence levels reported for some of the most vulnerable groups of young people (including pupils from a socially deprived background, Traveller Children and Looked After Children) are much higher than the average.  A number of recommendations are made.

Health and Social Care Trusts and the Health and Social Care Board have a duty to promote the welfare of children in their care under Article 26 of the Children (Northern Ireland) Order 1995.  This includes their educational achievement and therefore they must ensure that all children in care have an effective and robust Personal Educational Plan (PEP) in place to ensure focused planning and personal support to each child.
