This website tells you about all the support that we have in Lancashire for you as a care leaver.
We know that it is a big step when you move out of care and start living on your own or with friends.
Just because you are leaving care, or have already left care, we haven’t stopped caring about you. We want to make sure that you feel safe and supported and know where and who to go to for advice and help.
Care leavers have helped make the website. We will continue to listen to your views to make sure the services we offer are what you need.
To be able to get the support set out in the care leavers local offer, you must have been in care for a period of at least 13 weeks (or periods amounting to 13 weeks) which began after age 14 and included some time after your 16th birthday. If you are not sure whether you qualify for support, then ask your personal adviser.
Your personal adviser will talk with you about the information on this website.
