Sheffield Local Offer to Care Leavers
As Corporate Parents, we are delighted to share with you Sheffield’s Local Offer for Care Leavers, setting out how we can support you to achieve your full potential. We want you to have the stability and support you need to lead successful and fulfilling lives, and access to the opportunities and experiences that will help you reach your goals. Moving into adulthood is never straightforward but we want you to know that we believe in you and will be here if times get tough. Our Local Offer for Care Leavers will continue to develop as we work with you on your aspirations for the future and we strive to give you the best start possible to your adult life.
Sheffield Local Offer for Children and Young People Leaving Care
Leaving care can be a worrying and challenging time for young people. This guide is designed to tell you what support you can expect from Sheffield City Council as you take your next steps to independence. We want you to continue to feel safe and supported and know where or who to go to for advice and help on this journey.
Just because you are leaving care, or have already left care, we haven’t stopped caring about you wherever you are and whatever your situation. We will be by your side every step of the way and will be there to pick you up if you fall down, or to celebrate with you when you reach your goals. If you do not live in Sheffield, you will still be entitled to a personal advisor and financial support as outlined in the financial policy for care leavers. We can help you access support in your local area, however some support outlined in the Local Offer for Children and Young People Leaving Care may not be available outside Sheffield.
Local care leavers have helped make this document. We will continue to listen to your views to make sure the services we offer are what you need.
Sheffield Leaving Care Service are based at Sharrow Community Forum and available Monday to Thursday 8:45am to 5:15pm and Friday 8:45am to 4:45pm.
