Throughcare and Aftercare service for young people leaving care

We offer support, advice and guidance to you if you have been looked after by the local authority at or beyond your 16th birthday.

  • Throughcare is the support and advice we offer to you as you prepare to live more independently.
  • Aftercare is the ongoing support and advice we offer to you. This can carry on until your 26th birthday.

It is your social worker’s responsibility to make sure that a referral is made to us well before you leave care. This means that your move will take place at the right time.

We offer 1 to 1 and general support with various issues including

  • housing
  • health
  • employment
  • education
  • money and rights.

We deliver support, advice and guidance through an allocated worker service, a duty service and a variety of groupwork programmes.
