Leaving Care Contacts

If you are leaving care and need some advice or you're worried about leaving care as it all seems very daunting, you don't have to face this along. There are people who can help you.


If you are between the ages of 16 and 21 and are in, or were in, the care of Medway Council on or after your sixteenth birthday you are entitled to some support, advice or guidance. This support, advice or guidance could last until you are 25 years old. The type of support you are entitled to will depend on your personal circumstances.
