Children in care and care leavers
In care or leaving care? Information just4u
More information just4u
If you're in care we'll make sure your life's as normal as possible. You'll still be able to do the things you used to, like going to school, seeing your friends and family, and having fun.
Our pledge tells you how we'll care for you, make sure you get a good education, help you enjoy life and prepare you for the future.
Leaving care and becoming independent is a big step, so before you leave we'll make sure that you're well prepared.
