Am I eligible?

The Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 tells us what we must do to support young people who are leaving care; and the support you will receive will depend on what your Leaving Care Status is. Your status will depend on your circumstances and your age. You could be either an ‘Eligible’ ‘Relevant’, ‘Former Relevant’ or ‘Qualifying’ young person. If you are unsure about your Leaving Care Status, please ask your Social Worker or Personal Advisor. Or, you can email our Care Leavers Offer team to get more information. 

Coram Voice also provide a useful tool to help you to find out your care leaver status, you can find more information on their website
