Children and young people in care teams

Through care team (0-18 years)

Once a child under the age of 14 years becomes looked after their case will be held until they reach the age of 18.  The team will work to ensure that children in Local Authority care are well looked after and to secure permanence for these children without delay while working closely with children, parents, carers and all key professionals.  The team prepares and implements pathway plans for young people to help them develop independent living skills and prepare them for leaving care.
