Northern Irish Local Authorities

Please see below the number of young people in care aged 15-17 who are eligible to take the Stepladder of Achievement programme as at the date shown. Based on current experience of take-up rate and steps completed, we expect the average funding cost per young person to be c. £100. Multiplied by the number of young people in a particular local authority, this will provide some indication of the total contribution needed to offer Stepladder in that area.
