Leaving Care Entitlements

The law is complicated when it comes to leaving care. Your entitlements vary depending on when you came into care, how long you have been in care and how old you are. To find out exactly what you are entitled to speak to one of our advocates.

Most young people who have spent some time in care are entitled to:

  • a Leaving Care Advisor and a Pathway Plan

  • living in a safe place

  • financial support

  • setting up allowance

  • help to get accommodation

  • support to attend college and university

  • support now up to the age of 25
