Care Factsheets

Our Support and Engagement Team speak to children in care and care leavers about lots of different subjects. They often get asked about how the care system works and what happens when a child leaves care. That’s why we’ve put together these useful factsheets. If you have any questions about the issues covered or anything else to do with being in care or a care leaver, please contact our Care Advice Line.

Having a place to live

Having a place to live is a guide to the sort of places you may live while in care, and your housing options when you leave care.

Pathway to success

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.

Get to know your rights

Get to know your rights is a guide to the care system and what rights you have when you're in care.

Each of the factsheets have been translated into five languages - Arabic, Kurdish, Pashto, Tigrinya, Vietnamese, and Albanian (Having a Place to Live and Get to Know Your Rights) - for professionals, carers and young people to download and use.
