Leaving Care

Young people leaving care and not returning to their own families are provided with support to enable them to live independently in the community. A range of supported and other accommodation is available, as well as the Staffordshire mentoring project.

 


 

Through care structure

The service is made up of 4 teams that provide services to people aged 13 and above who are looked after, leaving care or have left care. The service covers the following areas: 

  • Newcastle and Staffordshire Moorlands, based in Newcastle
     
  • Stafford and South Staffordshire, based in Stafford
     
  • Cannock and Lichfield, based in Lichfield
     
  • Burton and Tamworth, based in Burton

 


 

Staffordshire Independence Programme

The Staffordshire Independence Programme contains twelve downloadable modules designed to prepare young people in care for the move to independence, and has been developed in response to young people telling The Voice Project that they do not often feel prepared enough before moving into independence. The Staffordshire Independence Programme offers a standardised approach to preparing all young people in the care of Staffordshire County Council for independence, ensuring all young people have the support required for this from the age of sixteen. View more information and the downloadable module documents.
