Doing All We Can to Support Care Leavers

It's National Care Leavers Week!

We are doing everything we can to support those in the area who are leaving care, to make sure they can thrive.

In September, we agreed to give a Council Tax discount to young people who have left the care system up to the age of 25. 

The tax discount is just one of the steps that we’re taking to support care leavers living in the District. We are also putting in place a programme of support which will provide employment opportunities, access to facilities which improve health and wellbeing, housing support and so much more.

We are using the Household Support Fund to support those who need help with food, energy, water and other household bills and essentials.
