Children in care and care leavers
The information on these web pages is for you if you are in the care of the local authority, also known as being ‘looked after’, a child in care, or a care leaver.
We know that the idea of being in care can be scary and can throw up all sorts of questions for you. The important thing to remember is that you will be helped to prepare for the time when you become more independent and support will continue to make sure you are settled and doing well. Through different plans, the support and help you need can be identified as well as deciding who is the best person to help you.
As there will be lots of things you want to know, we have put together some information and links to help you understand what services you should be getting from Hampshire Children’s Services.
