Care-leaving outcomes in South Africa

Girls and Boys Town South Africa (GBTSA) and the University of Johannesburg are delighted to present to you the Growth Beyond the Town Quantitative Research Report 2019.

The report presents the quantitative findings of the Growth Beyond the Town longitudinal research study since its inception in 2012 up until the end of 2018. It Describes the baseline results from 133 participants who were interviewed as they disengaged from GBTSA and then presents their outcomes measured each year during follow-up interviews for five years. It also describes the resilience variables that predict better outcomes for care-leavers as they transition out of care over those five years.

The authors (Dr Lisa Dickens and Prof Adrian van Breda) hope you find this a valuable report and we welcome any questions or feedback.
