Leaving Care Service

The Leaving Care Service offer advice, information, practical help and befriending to young people aged between 16-25 years who are eligible to receive care leaver support. Our aims are:

  • To ensure you are prepared & ready to leave the care system.
  • To build positive relationships and offer personal support, if required.
  • Listen to you and include your views in the preparation & planning for leaving care.
  • To be honest and realistic in terms of what responsibilities we have towards young people
  • To be clear on expectations about money and entitlements.
  • Promote opportunities for young people to gain independence and control your own life choices.
