Getting support as a care leaver
To get support as a care leaver you must have been in care for at least 13 weeks (or periods amounting to 13 weeks). This must have started after you were 14 years old and included some time after your 16th birthday.
There are other circumstances where you may be entitled to support.
If you are not sure whether you qualify, then:
- ask your personal adviser
- contact us and ask to speak to someone from the Leaving Care Service
