CARE LEAVERS

In Solihull, we want to ensure the support that we provide to you when you leave our care:

  • Is what we would do for our own children (recognising that all families will have a budget to work within).

  • Recognises you are an individual with individual needs.

  • Supports you in taking risks and responsibility for yourself as a young adult. We will offer you a ‘second chance’ if things do not work out first time round. Everyone makes some mistakes during their move to independence whether they have been in care or not.

  • Helps you to access and maximise all the support available to you through a range of services. This will include accessing benefits, practical and financial support.

  • Ensures all young people who have left our care are treated fairly.

 

The amount of support, including financial support, that you will get as a care leaver will be dependent on your age and individual circumstances.

Listening to young people who have care
experience is essential in understanding what works well within Solihull and what improvements can be made.
