Children’s guide to being in care

We are children in care and we have put this film and this guide together to help you understand more about being in care, about the people you will meet along the way and hopefully answer questions you have.

Leaving care

No-one leaves care without a forward plan and support. However, you may still have a lot of questions.

Don’t forget that we are here for care leavers uptimes to he age of 25 and, after you leave care, you can always contact us if you need help, advice or support.

Learn about your rights and entitlements here.

Here is our Care Leavers’ Strategy – called the ‘local offer’, which includes our promise to you up to the age of 25.
