Care leavers local offer
If you are a care leaver aged 16 to 25 years, this local offer is for you.
In April 2017 the Children and Social Work Act became law and the provision for care leavers was extended to include young people aged 22 to 25 who are not in education. We therefore have a duty to support care experienced young people to successfully move onwards and upwards to independence and to inform care leavers of what support is available to them.
If you are a care leaver, the information below explains your entitlements and will help you to get the best out of the support on offer from a variety of professionals in Swindon.
