Care Advice Line Factsheets Free to download, these factsheets for children in care and young care leavers - or those supporting them - cover essential issues including managing money, how the care system works and what young care leavers are entitled to. Download the PDF

Our Advice and Information team take calls from young people in care and care leavers on lots of different subjects. They often get asked about managing money, how the care system works and what young care leavers are entitled to.

That’s why we’ve put together these three FREE factsheets, available for you to download and keep - simply click on the images below to download.

The first one, All about the money, looks at financial support that’s available for care leavers aged 18 or over, including funds that you’re entitled to as well as sources of funding that you can apply for.

The name game looks at all the different people who work in children’s services who you might meet if you’re in care or a care leaver. It explains what different people do and how they can help you.

Pathway to success looks at pathway plans, which are really important documents setting out what you want to do, what support you need and how your council will help you get it.

If you have any further questions about anything on these factsheets, or if you don’t think you’re getting what you’re entitled to, you can call the Care Advice Line on 0800 023 2033 between 10.30am – 3pm from Monday to Friday.
