Leaving Care Charter
We know that leaving care can be a difficult and uncertain time with lots of changes to consider. Kent County Council, as your ‘Corporate Parent’, can be there to guide and support you through it. The Leaving Care Charter explains exactly what you should expect in terms of the help and support Kent County Council will give you as you leave care. It follows on from the Kent Pledge made to children and young people in the care of Kent County Council. The Charter says that you must be asked about important decisions that affect you and that your opinions should be listened to. The Charter explains what you can do if things aren’t going well or you feel you are not receiving the support you should. It also tells you how you can have an input into the services Kent County Council provides for children in care and care leavers.
If you do not have a copy of the Leaving Care Charter, please ask your Personal Adviser for one. You can also find it here.
