Care Leavers Local Offer

1. Overview

We offer support to young people as they make the transition from being in the care of the local authority to independence. We know that it is a big step when you move out of care and start living on your own or with friends.

Just because you are leaving care, or have already left care, we haven’t stopped caring about you. We want to make sure that you feel safe and supported and know where and who to go to for advice and help.

To be able to get the support set out in our Care Leavers Local Offer, you must have been in care for at least 13 weeks between the ages of 14 and 16 (including your 16th birthday) or for 13 weeks after your 16th birthday.

If you are not sure whether you qualify for support, then ask your personal adviser.
