Leaving care is a moment in your life, and without the right support it can be difficult and stressful. Even though you are leaving care, or have left care, as your corporate parents, we still care about you and want to support you to have the chances and successes in life that other young adults have.
The Local Offer for Care Leavers tells you about the “offer” of services and support that we have in Nottinghamshire for you as a care leaver. We know that it is a big step when you move out of care and start living on your own or with others. We want to make sure that you feel safe and supported and know how to get the advice and help you need. We want you to know what is available to you.
Local care leavers have told us what services and support are important when leaving care and this has helped us to create this offer. Email us to tell us what else you need to help you when you leave care so we can try to make sure the services and support available are what you need and continue to improve. Quality.firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also tell your personal adviser or social worker.
Everything that is in the offer is available on this part of the Notts Help Yourself website www.nottshelpyourself.org.uk/careleaverslo and on the Notts Next Steps app which you can download to your smart phone or tablet device by searching for NottsNextSteps (by This is Focus).
