About our offer

Our Care Leavers Offer sets out the support you can receive from the Leaving Care Team (PDF 146Kb) as you get older.

Our support starts from the age of 16 years, when your Social Worker will introduce your Leaving Care Worker to you (called your Personal Adviser or PA).

Your PA will support you with everything you need to know and prepare for as you approach 18 years old. Then from 18 years, your PA will be your key worker, they'll support you and make sure your wishes, feelings and plans for the future are set out in your own plan – called your Pathway Plan.

This support continues until you are 21 years old, and can continue up to 25 years if you want this.
