Support for Care Leavers

Care Leaver

We work with young people to ensure they feel supported into independence after leaving care, this is known as our Local Offer for care leavers.

Young people who have been looked after by Together for Children may need some support to help them into independence and adult life. This support can include:

  • deciding where to live
  • choosing whether  to go into work, get some more training or study for more qualifications
  • budgeting advice
  • working out how much support might be needed from a social worker or personal adviser

The level of support that is offered depends on:

  • the young person's age
  • when and how long they were looked after
  • whether they are still being looked after
