Care Leavers


All local authorities have a legal obligation to support young people making the transition from care to independence. We have more information on what you could be entitled to on our Housing Support Services page.

The support is available to those who are:

  • eligible young people aged 16 or 17 who have been looked after for a period or periods of time, start care after the age of 14, or are still in care
  • relevant young people aged 16 or 17 who are no longer looked after, having previously been in a category of eligible young person
  • former relevant young people aged 18 to 25 who have left care having previously either been eligible or relevant or both.

If you have left care, and Kent County Council has appointed you a personal adviser, please pass your bill to them to arrange payment.  Further information on their local offer is available on the Kent County Council website.
