LOCAL OFFER FOR CARE LEAVERS
Are you a care leaver aged 16-25? This Local Offer is for you!
Welcome to the Local Offer For Care Leavers website. Here you will find information about the support that is available to young people who have been in the care of the London Borough of Sutton and are now aged 16-25. In April 2017 the Children and Social Work Act became law and the provision for care leavers has been extended to include young people aged 22-25 who are not in education. If you are a care leaver you can use this website to find out what support you are able to access. Local Authorities have a duty to support care experienced young people to successfully move onwards and upwards to independence and to inform care leavers of what support is available to them. This Local Offer website explains your entitlements as a care leaver and will also help you to get the best out of the support on offer.
This Local Offer website has been created with input from care leavers and a variety of professionals who support care leavers in Sutton.
In addition, we run a varied programme of events and activites throughout the year for young people, click here to view our 2018 prospectus that is updated monthly.
