If you are in custody

If you are in custody

The Care Leavers 18+ Service will offer you support if you are detained in custody. We work closely with prisons and the probation service to monitor and support you as you enter or leave custody. We will establish close working partnerships with the resettlement officers and the local prisons.

There will be a financial payment of £10 per week for those aged 18 - up to 21yrs for those Care Leavers described as Former Relevant while they are in custody. To receive this payment, you must be engaging in positive activities whilst in prison e.g. training or education programmes.

Personal Advisers will continue to visit every 6 - 8 weeks and communicate with your supporting network.

During the final sentence over a 12-week period your Children in Care Social Worker or Personal Advisor will be exploring your housing and support options before you are discharged. The discharge plan will be formulated into the Pathway Plan. We will work with Probation, NACRO and OMU.
