Care Leavers

If you’re leaving care you will be able to access lots of support. Depending on your age you will be assigned either a social worker or personal advisor to work on your pathway plan which will include the most suitable housing for you.

If you need a homelessness assessment your worker will arrange an appointment at Leeds Housing Options and will normally attend with you.

If you have lost contact with your personal advisor, we can help to arrange another for you if you are either:

  • a careleaver under 25 and in full-time education
  • a careleaver under 21

If either of the above apply, please call 0113 222 4403. If neither apply, please visit Housing Options for an assessment. We will provide a safe space for you to discuss your housing problems.
