Code: SGC/22/0079 Preparing Young People for Independence (Cancelled)

Care leavers have told us that they would have found moving on to independence much easier if they had developed more life skills before leaving care.

We will also have members of the team to offer advice on accommodation options including Staying Put Scheme and Supported Lodgings.
