When you turn 25 you will not receive any more support as a care leaver from your Local Authority. This can sometimes be a worrying time for care leavers as they look ahead to that transition.

We hear from young care experienced people about the prospect of losing support, and what their worries and concerns are, as well as people who have already lost their support – either at 25 or often at a younger age, and hear how they managed and what advice they have for others.

If you are going through this and need advice or support visit our Help at Hand site or call Help at Hand on 0800 528 0731, you can also check out our range of support links.
