Our Care Leavers have told us that they don’t always feel prepared for leaving care and becoming independent. In Staffordshire we want to change that. We are committed to ensure that for our children in care, preparation for independent life starts early and forms part of our permancy planning strategy for young people
In co-production with our care experienced young people, we have developed the Staffordshire Independence Programme.
The programme is a series of modules to help you prepare for adult life and support you to move to your own tenancy.
The programme is accredited this means you will get a certificate for completing it and it will show housing providers that you are ready to manage your own tenancy.
