The role of your personal adviser

Your personal adviser (PA) will help you get ready to live independently and offer advice and support after you leave care.

You can now get support from your PA up to the age of 25.

If possible, you will keep the same PA, and the amount of support you get from them will depend on what you want and your circumstances. They will talk to you about what support you need and record this information in your pathway plan.


 

What is a pathway plan?

Your pathway plan is written by us, with input from you and the important people in your life. It sets out what you need, your views, your future goals, and exactly what support you will get from us.

Together, we will look at your pathway plan regularly and keep it up-to-date.


 

Extra support

You and your leaving care team will look at any extra support you need. You might need extra support because:

  • you have special educational needs or a disability
     
  • you are an unaccompanied asylum-seeking child (UASC) and your immigration status is unclear
     
  • you are in or leaving custody or you have had contact with the criminal justice system
     
  • you are a young parent
     
  • you are going through a difficult time in your personal life
