Situation

It can be lonely and confusing being in care. Children and young people in and leaving care often have lots of questions about what support they are entitled to, but finding this information can be difficult and confusing.

Solution

Our Care Advice Service provides specialist information and advice to hundreds of care-experienced young people across the country each year. We help young people navigate the complex and bureaucratic landscape of the care system, and answer questions on anything from their rights to contact with siblings, to financial support, independent living and access to education and employment.
