Who is it for?

See what services and support you are entitled to

As a care leaver you are legally entitled to a range of support and services from us.

This site tells you what these services are, and how we will help you get them.

To get help from the Leaving Care Service, you must either have

  • been in care for at least 13 weeks between the ages of 14 and 16 (including on your 16th birthday) or
  • been in care for at least 13 weeks after your 16th birthday

If you are 21 to 25, we can provide you with help and support up to the age of 25 if it’s needed, depending on your circumstances.

If you are not sure if you are entitled to support, just ask your Personal Adviser or your worker.
