In 2018 the government introduced new laws to ensure that any care leaver (up to the age of 25 years old) who wants and needs support from a Personal Advisor could get one. Before April 2018 this was only available for to Care Leavers up until 21 other than in some specific situations.

These new powers have helped us to look at how we can make our services for Care Leavers better. We have been working together with different services, partners and care leavers to make sure that we have the right support available, at the right time to help and that it is easy to understand and access.

By clicking on the links below you can find out more about what services you can access and how you can get help.

If you have any questions or want to speak to somebody about these services you can call the Leeds Care Leavers Service on 0113 378 1149 or email us at careleavers@leeds.gov.uk.
