Be part of an important Ryerson University School of Social Work Graduate Studies research study

Are you between 18 and 21 years of age? Have you been involved in Child Welfare and want to share your story?

If you answered YES to these questions, you may be eligible to participate in a Focus Group research study.

The purpose of this research study is to study the experiences of Crown Wards once they have graduated from care. Specifically, I wish to explore the transition experience from care to independence.

You may not benefit from participating in this research study, but may help others in the future. It is a good opportunity for you to speak about important issues, share your experience, and help contribute to future research and the development of new and alternative policies and possible practice procedures.

Participants will be reimbursed for their time and travel.

Adults (18 - 21 years of age) are eligible to participate.

The Focus Group will be held in the GTA.

This study has been reviewed by, and received ethics clearance through, The Research Ethics Board (REB)
