Are you a Care Leaver looking for support?
The support and services we offer you as a young person leaving care have been set out in this document. This is called the Local Offer.
The Local Offer is for care leavers up to the age of 25, to help you get ready to live independently in the right housing and employment so that you are well prepared for adult life.
Moving out to live on your own or with friends is a huge step; it will be exciting and challenging at the same time. The local offer will help us make sure you feel safe and supported and know where to go and who to ask for help when you need it.
Just like any good parent, we’re still here for you, to help you learn the skills, and get the support you need to be healthy, happy and achieve your goals as you become independent.
The Local Offer covers five areas of life you might need support with:
- Accommodation and housing
- Education, training and employment
- Health and wellbeing
- Relationships and participation in society
Your Personal Adviser can help you understand and get the most out of the Local Offer.
