What is the Local Offer to Care Leavers?
The Local Offer is where you'll find information to support care leavers aged 18 to 21, and 25 if in education or training, who are in the care of Hounslow. It is a clear and comprehensive guide to what services and support are available.
What is in the Offer?
Local Authorities have a legal duty to support young people making the transition from care to adulthood. It is the responsibility of the council to make sure care leavers know what services are available to them, and what they can expect to receive, when in the care of Hounslow.
This Local Offer for care leavers aims to clearly set out in one document, what care leavers are entitled to, and what we expect from care leavers. It will help care leavers make the most out of services available to them and provide support with the transition to adulthood and independence.
We consulted with a group of experienced care leavers who gave their views and opinions on the layout and content of this Offer.
You will find information on the following in this Offer:
- your money and documents
- where you live
- your safety
- getting your voice heard
- your health
- your education, employment and training
