Helping a young person prepare for leaving care

Young people need the support of their carers to help them prepare for adult lives, build positive connections and achieve their life goals

Personal information and belongings

Young people leaving care are entitled to keep all their possessions. These can include personal belongings, clothing, equipment such as wheelchairs, or furniture that may have been purchased for them while in care.

They are also allowed access to any personal information held by you, including school reports, medical reports and personal photographs.
