Our support to care leavers

All the services and support in one place to help you achieve what you want from life.

When you leave care there are lots of things that you need to do yourself that might have been done for you before. Here at the Care Leavers' Service, we know that can be exciting but also scary and a bit confusing so we're here to help you through it.

The core offer to care leavers aims to clearly set out your entitlements and what you can expect from us in one place, and help you make the most out of the services available to you. If you have any questions or if you feel you need something different, just ask your personal adviser and we'll see what we can do.

We have asked our care leavers what is important to them and what they think about what we do. We have used this feedback to help us make the core offer for you, and we will continue to listen to your views to make sure the help we give you is right for you.
