Independence & Staying Put
4 hour course
Carers will learn about children growing up towards an age of independence and statistics on care leavers, how carers can support their young people move into adult life, what a Pathway plan is, and information on supported lodgings. Carers will also explore care leaversâ€™ experiences and concerns, as well as tips on how to say goodbye and staying in touch.
Useful for anyone with teenage children in place as preparation for independence starts early; also for carers with vacancies that are able to take older children.
