Help When Leaving Care...
Leaving care can be a very scary thing and might be very challenging. While your friends and peers are able to stay home after the age of 18 you will have to start making your own way in life.
Deciding what you want to do or how to go about doing what you are interested in is not as easy some times. If you need support you can find out about Wokingham's Care Leavers Local Offer on the Wokingham Children in Care Council website.
Job Centre Plus also offer lots of support for young care leavers, so get in touch with your local JCP if this applies to you.
You can also check out The Care Leaver's Foundation to see if they can offer you any financial support as a care leaver.
