The information in this section will help you plan for when you leave care and start to live independently as a care leaver. It will tell you what services are available to you and what you can expect to receive from Kent County Council when you turn 18. This is known as the ‘Local Offer’ and can be accessed here. The Care Leavers 18+ Service can assist you to access housing, education, training, work experience and health services, as well as provide advice and encouragement to help you make the most of your journey through the care system.

All young people in care aged over 16 and care leavers can attend the Young Adult Council. Here you can have your say, be listened to and make a difference to the lives of children and young people in care!
