Local Offer for care leavers

Information about the support we have in Dorset for you as a care leaver.

We know it's a big step when you move out of care and start living on your own or with friends. Just because you're leaving care, or have already left care, we haven't stopped caring about you. We want to make sure you feel safe and supported and know where and who to go to for advice and help. 

We will work with local care leavers to make sure the services we offer are what you need. 

To get the support described in this section, you must have been in care for at least 13 weeks between the ages of 14 and 16 (including your 16th birthday), or for 13 weeks after your 16th birthday.
